SUMMIT, NJ - Jim Davidson, Summit High School's iconic boys lacrosse coach, is to be put forth as the boys basketball coach for the 2013-14 season. The nomination appears on the Summit Board of Education agenda for a special meeting to be held on June 26, 6:30 p.m., at Wilson School Board meeting Room.
If approved, Davidson will replace David White, who was not retained at the conclusion of last season. The on-going process has, at times, become emotional and heated, with White challenging the process that led to his leaving the post.
Davidson, inducted into the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2007, has been the head lacrosse coach at SHS since 1998, passing the milestone 200-win mark in 2010. He has been NJSIAA Coach of the Year twice, coached 14 All-Americans, won two State Tournament of Champions Titles, and engineered a 68-game winning streak that began in 2009 and lasted through the 2011 state TOC final.
