La Crosse is led by Head Coach Ken Koelbl, who has been the head coach there since 2003-2004. In that time, he has won almost 200 games and has had several seasons with 16+ wins. In 2015-2016, they played a tough regular season schedule including Augustana College (Illinois), Hope College (Michigan), and in-conference rivals Wisconsin Oshkosh and Wisconsin Whitewater.

The plays include some quick actions to score using combination screens.
