Gilman (Md.) announced on May 1 that John Nostrant will be its next varsity lacrosse coach.
Nostrant has been the head coach at Haverford School since 1991 and won 489 games in his career. Nostrant succeeds Brooks Matthews who announced he was stepping down as the Greyhounds head coach following the 2019 season.
Nostrant announced previously that the 2019 season would be his last at Haverford School. The Fords longtime head coach won 16 championships and led his 2011 and 2015 teams to undefeated seasons and a nationally No. 1.
He is No. 2 all-time in Pennsylvania for the most wins in a career. Entering his final season as Fords' head coach, Nostrant is among the Top 25 all-time for wins. His 16 championships place him among the most successful high school coaches of all time when you factor in state and penultimate conference championships.
Haverford School is 14-3 this season and riding an eight-game winning streak. The Fords are coming off two wins in the GEICO Lacrosse Showcase and two wins over nationally-ranked programs last week (IMG Academy and Ward Melville).
Nostrant takes over a Gilman program that is 9-5 and participates in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA).
Matthews entered this season with 140 wins since taking over the Gilman program in 2005.
