Kevin Locastro Taking Over Lausanne a Program as Ken Netherland Retires

Kevin Locastro will take over the Lausanne program as legendary coach Ken Netherland has retired after starting the program back in 2011.

Locastro came on board the Lausanne program last season after resigning at Christian Brothers last year.

He helped the Lynx program transition into varsity play and Lausanne went 6-3 in 2013.

"I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to be on the ground level of a program I believe has tremendous potential to be special," Locastro said.

"Great programs are made at many levels. It takes an administration that understands the importance football plays within the schools success."

Netherland retires with a 368-131-3 overall record which makes the longtime coach the winningest coach in the state of Tennessee.

"We all knew when I came on board it wasn't going to be a 15-year commitment. I wanted to come in and help start the program at this great school.

"Lausanne is in a very good position with the facilities, the students are great and I know good things are going to happen on that field in the years to come,” Netherland said.

Locastro had a solid 15 year career as the head coach at CBHS where he posted a 109-59 overall record.

Besides winning consistently at CBHS, Locastro's teams finished Division II-AA state runner up in 1999 to MBA and in 2005 they lost 31-27 to arch rival Memphis University School in the Division II-AAA title game.

"I know Lausanne, under the leadership of Mr. McCathey, our AD Troy Baker, and the rest of the administration, will help foster this process," Locastro said

CBHS also won three Division II West titles in 2005, 2007 and 2010 under Locastro’s guidance as well.

"Lausanne football will continue to grow and improve. Vision and leadership start at the very top. We have tremendous support from our Headmaster, Stuart McCathie, and Lausanne Athletic Director Troy Baker said. Our community has embraced football and the level of interest will continue to rise as we experience more success. The players are learning what it takes to be champions.”
