He follows Soni Taylor, who successfully managed the organization through a multi-year period of 20 percent annual growth. Larkin played the sport on the Olympus High School boy’s club team and at Utah State University, where he was president of the men’s Lacrosse team. He has a degree in Business Information Systems, and varied experience in the business world. His technical skills will help the ULA improve its communication and online registration processes, and his organizational abilities will help strengthen the association’s volunteer base. He started on Dec. 27th. Soni Taylor who served as the organization’s first executive director for three years – will stay on for a one-month transition period before leaving to pursue Lacrosse-related business activities. "As the first full-time, paid US Lacrosse chapter executive director in the country, Soni is a true pioneer, well regarded by the national organization in Baltimore," said Michael O’Malley, ULA board president. "In her time with the ULA, she pushed us forward on many fronts, including driving broad-based expansion in our youth leagues and improving the ULA’s financial reserves and service delivery in a period of high growth. We’re looking forward to Paul helping to push our organization further." The Utah Lacrosse Association is a regional chapter of US Lacrosse, the national governing body of the sport. Lacrosse is a high-speed, high-scoring sport played by male and female Utahns from Kindergarten to post-collegiate age groups. More than 34 boy’s high school teams and 18 girl’s high school teams competed in the spring 2005 season. Lacrosse is considered the fastest-growing team sport in the country.
