Head Coach Richard Grenier is in his 7th year at the helm of the Thunderbolt Soccer Program. Over the past seven years (2013-2019), the Bolts own an overall record of 79-30-22 (65-22-19 in league play).

His teams (304-131-84) have now qualified for the playoffs for the 26th time. Over the past three decades, his teams have earned 9 sportsmanship awards, 6 state final appearances, 3 state championships, 15 semi-final appearances and 11 Cranston "City Cup" Championships out of 16 games played. He has the distinction of being the only Rhode Island boys' soccer coach to have three different teams (Cranston West - 1996, West Warwick - 2007 & Cranston East - 2014) awarded the RISOA Team Sportsmanship Award, as well as three different schools win State Championships (Cranston West - 1996, West Warwick - 2004 & Cranston East - 2017).
Matt Grenier, who holds career records at West Warwick High School (376 saves, 38 wins & 20 shutouts), continued as the Cranston East Assistant Varsity Coach. Recently, his Junior Varsity team won the annual Division II JV Jamboree. In three years at the helm of the Junior Varsity program, his teams have gone a remarkable 33-3-12 while scoring 96 goals and allowing just 36. Grenier, who attends Rhode Island College as Physical/Health Education/Special Education major is in his fourth year as a Thunderbolt coach.
Jake Leander, who earned All-Conference honors last season while playing for the Knights, wraps up his career at CCRI this fall. The former All-Division defender from West Warwick will continue as a volunteer coach for his fourth consecutive year.
The Thunderbolts of Cranston East had a 31-game streak without being issued a card from 2013-2015. In 131 games played over the past seven seasons, the Bolt have averaged less than five cards (4.50) per year.
