Langham Creek was the first high school in Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District to have a school-recognized boys lacrosse club. It is a parent-funded, student-led club that receives no monetary support from the high school or the district.
The high school program began in the fall of 2011 when parents and students saw the need for another lacrosse program in the massive Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. If the UIL ever approved lacrosse as a competitive sport for high school, Langham Creek would be poised to take advantage with an established lacrosse program. The early years were hard. As expected, the team suffered heavy losses the first 3 seasons finishing 2-14 in 2012, 3-14 in 2013 and 2-11 in 2014.
2014 also saw the addition of the 7th and 8th grade middle school program. A feeder program for the developing high school team was necessary to train and encourage young players to love the game and continue with it into high school. This program was led by Brendan Hunt for 2 years before moving to head coach of the high school team.
The foundations we laid in the early years began to pay off in 2015 as younger players were now junior and seniors and trained middle school players were entering high school for the first time. In 2015, the Lobos finished 7-8, which was a far cry from the losing streaks we had established the previous 3 years.
2016 was a banner year for Langham Creek. We hired Brendan Hunt as our Head Coach, and took on a small but extremely talented freshman class. We finished the season with a 10-5 record, marking our first winning season in program history!
The freshman class of 2017 was large and allowed us to establish a JV team for the first time. This was important in allowing younger players to be developed and get vital playing time. The Lobos set more records in 2017. The season ended with a 12-3 record and the team entered the playoffs for the first time. We finished as runners-up in the City Championship game to Woodlands DII (7-4), but qualified for a trip to the Super Regional Playoffs in Dallas. Our season ended with a loss to a talented Prosper team (12-3). In addition to our outstanding season Coach Brendan Hunt was named by THSLL as DII Coach of the Year and we had multiple players earn All-State and All-District awards.
For 2018, Coach Hunt ramped up the schedule and the Lobos played more competitive games. In regular season play we finished with a 14-2 records with our only losses going to power house DII programs Prosper and Georgetown. We entered playoffs in first place for our division and went to the City Championship game for the 2nd year in a row. Again we finished runner up losing to a talented and hungry Klein program (10-6). Our performance led us to another birth in the Super Regional Playoffs. We handedly beat Ft. Worth 9-0 in the first round but fell to Westlake in round 2 (9-10). Despite our disappointing loss, we could not have been happier with our season. The Lobos finished 17-4 and outscored our opponents on average 11-4. The team's defense was ranked 3rd in the state for goals allowed while the offense was ranked 5th for points scored. We had our first victory in state playoffs in program history and also earned a spot into the Elite 8 for the first time! Again multiple players earned All-State and All-District honors and Coach Hunt was name THSLL Coach of the Year for the 2nd year in a row!
2019 looked to be a great year with an extremely seasoned and talented group of upperclassmen. Additionally, we took on another large freshman class who performed very well in the JV games. The Varsity Lobos embarked on our most competitive schedule to date facing more D1 schools than ever before. We qualified for the State Super Regional in Dallas for the 3rd year in a row but lost in the first round to a talented Regents School of Austin in triple overtime. We finished the season 15-5 and had more players receive post-season honors than ever before - including 5 All State nominations! In addition, 5 of our 6 seniors committed to play NCAA DIII lacrosse - all for Southwestern University! The season was only marred by the announcement that our beloved Coach Hunt and his wife would be leaving Houston to return to Michigan. Coach Hunt amassed a 56-17 record (.767) in his four years as head coach. His energy on the field and his commitment to the team will be greatly missed.
During the off season, the Lobos hired Sebastian Domenech as our new head coach. The 2020 senior class has seen a lot of success over the last few years and hopes to continue the trend under their new coach and senior captains Andrew Alvarado (goalie) and Alex Brooks (attack).
Our '20-'21 Lobos are stacked with experienced players, many of whom have been playing year-round for 5+ years. We are expecting a season of domination, and welcome all challengers!
