KJ Boys Lacrosse Coach of the Year: K.C. Johnson, Gardiner
Veteran coach led Tigers to 1st unbeaten regular season in 4 years.

To be fair, K.C. Johnson isn’t the easiest coach to play for. And to his credit. he completely accepts that as fact.

But Johnson has a way of pushing his players to be better every single time they step on the field. This year, Gardiner Area High School posted a 12-0 regular season and advanced to the Class B North regional finals for the first time since 2013. Named the 2017 U.S. Lacrosse state coach of the year in June, Johnson has been selected as the Kennebec Journal Boys Lacrosse Coach of the Year. Jason Wade of Erskine and Joe Hinckley of Oak Hill were also considered.

“He knows how good we can be,” said Gardiner junior midfielder Sloan Berthiaume, the Kennebec Journal Player of the Year. “He knows we’re better than we perform sometimes. He doesn’t let us relax or just accept ‘good enough.’ He keeps on pushing us.”
