Grossmont Water Polo Coach Tyrent Lackey adds another award to his collection.

Grossmont’s very own Tyrent Lackey has again added another accolade to his resume by being named the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference’s All-Sports Coach of the Year. 

Lackey was also recently added to the Hall of Fame in 2021 for his performance as an incredible water polo athlete from 2003-2004 at Grossmont. He also holds three “Coach of The Year ” awards at Grossmont, and this will be his first across all sports.

“Being named PCAC coach of the year is a great honor,” Lackey said. “I’m very thankful for the recognition and can honestly say it speaks to the hard work and dedication of my athletes. I hope that this recognition brings more attention to the aquatics program here at Grossmont and the good work we are doing.”

Under Lackey last fall, the Griffins finished No. 4 statewide and managed to capture at least 20 matches for the second time in three years.

Grossmont is fortunate to have such an impressive and dedicated coach, and the Griffins look forward to seeing how much more he can accomplish in his time here.
