The boys lacrosse team is made up of boys from various backgrounds, but they all share a deep love of the sport of lacrosse and a commitment to each other as teammates. While coming from different backgrounds is a challenge, we also see the opportunity in truly helping shape a large component of their development as leaders, student-athletes and young men. We are proud to be able to work with these boys in this athletic environment where we can instill and guide many traits that aren't as common in the classroom. For us, things like mental toughness, grit, respect and confidence are as big a part of the team as any other piece.
