Orange Lutheran Athletics is pleased to announce that Lindsay Charity ’05 has been named head girls basketball coach. Coach Charity replaces former head coach Tom Howard ’94, who stepped down from the role in March 2020.
“Coach Charity represents the Christ-centered, championship mindset that the past, present, and future of OLu basketball was built on,” said an email from administrators to the girls basketball families. “She has played an integral role as an assistant coach the last three years, building relationships with our student-athletes, instructing them on the court and mentoring them off of the court.”
A 2010 graduate of California State University, Fullerton, Charity served as the Orange Lutheran girls basketball varsity assistant and associate head coach under Howard. She has coached for the past 11 seasons, 9 of which were at Trinity League schools, in a variety of roles. As a player, Coach Charity was a four-year varsity player for the Lancers and was named 1st team all-league as well as league MVP.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to step in as head coach of this program,” Charity said. There is a long-standing legacy of competitive excellence and faith-centered culture at OLu which I’m thrilled to continue being a part of. With the resources and enthusiasm behind this program, I think we are going to be able to continue that winning tradition.”
The girls basketball season is expected to begin in November.
