Sycamore’s girls’ lacrosse coach on mend after emergency quadruple bypass

SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP - Eddie Clark's exercise regimen this week was to walk for three minutes three times during the day.

For a former athlete who still actively officiates basketball and paces the lacrosse sidelines like a caged tiger, the prescription was frustrating.

At 46 years old, the Sycamore girls lacrosse coach recently had his July 4 plans spoiled by open heart quadruple bypass surgery that took place June 30 at Bethesda North Hospital. Amazingly, with today's medical technology, he was home July 5 recuperating with some words of advice.

Sycamore coach Eddie Clark expresses his displeasure with his team during a timeout in the Division I lacrosse state semifinals at Beavercreek High School.

"The two things I would say is keep track of your family history and my wife's going to like this one, but listen to your wife when they tell you to go to the doctor," Clark said. 

The highly-decorated Sycamore coach had his summer lacrosse teams (he has five) in Indianapolis Sunday, June 27 but was in the doctor's office at the behest of his wife Monday, June 28.
