Arun­del el­e­vates Baur to head boys lax coach

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Arun­del ath­letic di­rec­tor Kevin Nec­es­sary didn’t need to search far to find his next boys lacrosse coach. The best choice was al­ready in­house — as­sis­tant coach Bobby Baur. “I think he’s al­ready very much a leader in our build­ing, and what I hope is he’s able to re­ally bring a pos­i­tive cul­ture,” Nec­es­sary said. “That’s what I’m look­ing for with any head coach hire. Wins are great, that sort of thing is great, but do they first take into ac­count the ex­pe­ri­ence of the high school kid?” Baur re­places three-year coach Larry Kramer, whose last sea­son re­sulted in a 10-6 mark. Kramer left the pro­gram be­fore the end of the reg­u­lar sea­son; Nec­es­sary took over to guide the Wild­cats through the play­offs, where they fell to even­tual state cham­pion Sev­erna Park in the sec­tion fi­nal. Baur had al­ways wanted to be head coach. He’d been close, serv­ing un­der head coaches for eight years, first at Bel Air in 2011 and C. Mil­ton Wright from 2012 to 2016 be­fore tak­ing a job with Arun­del as a tech­nol­ogy ed­u­ca­tion teacher, as­sist­ing Kramer. Baur played four years for the Bel Air var­sity lacrosse team as well as for Washington Col­lege.
