The Girls Lacrosse Club of Frisco (GLCOF) Board of Directors announces two new coaches to lead its Frisco Fury high school and youth programs with the goal of continued growth and success of the program. Both hires are familiar names to girls lacrosse in North Texas.

  • Pam (Sagehorn) Henry is the new Program Director for high school and youth.

Pam Henry will be the head coach of the Frisco Fury DI Varsity team and 7/8 youth team in addition to her Program Director duties. Henry most recently held the Girls Program Director title in McKinney and led the McKinney Varsity team to win the DII TGHSLL North District title and State Championship in spring 2021. In 2016, her first year with McKinney, she led the team to the district playoffs and quarterfinals at the state tournament. The team became the 2018 D1 Aggieland Champions. Prior to McKinney she held other coaching positions outside of Texas and around the Dallas area including the youth girls’ program director for Frisco Lacrosse Association. Henry is a native of Bridgewater, NJ and a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University (NJ), where she was a two-sport athlete in both lacrosse and basketball. [ Read Coach Pam’s full bio. ]

Both hires address recent vacancies for high school and youth program directors. High School Program Director Kailah Kempney moved out-of-state in January with Coach Claire McCain stepping up to lead the high school program for spring 2021.  This month GLCOF’s one-and-only Youth Program Director, Beth King, gave her resignation to the board. She will continue to serve as a co-commissioner for the Texas Girls Youth Lacrosse League and helping the sport of girls lacrosse grow in North Texas.

“I’ve made this decision because I want to be around and available for my son’s upcoming senior year in high school, and I would also like to be completely present for my daughter’s high school lacrosse playing experience,” said Coach Beth King. “I have fully enjoyed over a decade of growing the game of girls lacrosse in Frisco and often feel as though I get as much from the girls as I give. I am excited about the future of the Frisco Fury.  I’ve known Coach Pam & Coach Amy for as long as I’ve been coaching in Frisco, and they are going to be a fantastic addition to our program.  I look forward to helping them make a smooth, consistent transition into the program. I will always be the Fury’s biggest fan!”

“Coach Beth has been the heart of GLCOF, and the Fury Family has so much gratitude for the way she built the youth program. Her leadership and contributions will positively impact the program for years to come,” said Melanie McElroye, President – GLCOF Board of Directors. “We anticipate continued growth and success in this new chapter with Coach Pam and Coach Amy taking the lead. Their combined experience will help us meet our goal of developing players who are successful on the field and in life.”
