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.

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.
