Sean Young is the new head coach of the Mascenic girls’ basketball team.

“It’s exciting, it really is,” Young said.

Young, who previously coached the Wilton-Lyndeborough and Epping boys’ basketball teams, is the latest high-profile hire at Mascenic after athletic director Kevin Rines brought in long-time New Hampshire coach John Langlois to head up the boys’ program earlier this year. Young said he’s looking forward to sharing a gym with Langlois.

“The idea of getting to see something taught from a coach who’s had as much success or more success than I’ve had as a coach, and get to learn something from him, that was very appealing to me,” Young said.

Young got his start locally as the Wilton-Lyndeborough boys’ head coach in the late 2000s, earning Division IV Coach of the Year honors in 2006-07 and 2007-08. Young’s Warriors were state runner-up in 2008. 

As head coach at Epping, Young went to back-to-back state title games; the Blue Devils won in 2014 and lost to WLC in 2015. 

Young departed for a stint as head coach at Great Bay Community College and then took the athletic director position at Nute before stepping down in spring of 2018.

As Mascenic’s head coach, Young said he hopes to employ a fast-paced, run-and-gun offense with a deep rotation, and to teach his girls to thrive in high-pressure moments. 

“The first thing out of my mouth at practice will be: I want you to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations,” Young said. “I want you out of your comfort zone.”

Rines coached Mascenic to a 10-8 record and a playoff berth last season. Young and the Vikings will hit the gym for tryouts next week.
