BANNER ELK -- Lees-McRae women's lacrosse head coach Ray Cameron has resigned effective immediately, announced athletic director Craig McPhail.
No reason was given for Cameron's resignation in the news release sent out by the college.
"Ray came to us at time where we needed stability, leadership, and experience in building a program. He has elevated the program and established an identity for women's lacrosse at Lees-McRae College," McPhail said in a news release. "I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have worked for him and watched him create a wonderful atmosphere for our young women. He will continue to be an asset in and around our campus community."
Cameron posted an 8-16 record during his two seasons at the helm while his squad earned consecutive Messick Sportsmanship Awards from Conference Carolinas.
Seven Bobcats were tabbed to the Conference Carolina All-Academic team while under the direction of Cameron and Jenah Tracy and Katelin Rooney were tabbed to the Conference Carolinas All-Conference Second-Team for their accolades in 2014.
Lees-McRae notched at least 15 goals in each of its wins last season.
Cameron also started the girls' lacrosse team at Watauga High School. It was a club sport before it received varsity status.
The search for Cameron's replacement at Lees-McRae will begin immediately.
