The history and success of Loomis’s boys lacrosse program is well known throughout New England due in part to the program’s founder and head coach for 49 years, Jim Wilson, who started the team in 1959. Since that time the lacrosse program evolved into one of the strongest high school teams in the country. With many Founders League Championships and more importantly, mentoring many young men in our program, Loomis has produced hundreds of college lacrosse players over the years, including Major League Lacrosse Players Drew Snider (Maryland), Ari Sussman (Dartmouth), Charlie Streep (UVA), and Tyler Casertrano (Yale). Playing in the reputable NE West 1 Lacrosse League, Loomis athletes compete at the highest level in lacrosse. Loomis Chaffee is looking for student-athletes who will be leaders in the classroom, on campus, and on the playing fields.
The Loomis Chaffee Schedule 2015 Season
Bill Walsh, the great NFL coach, wrote, "The competitor who won't go away, who won't stay down, has one of the most formidable competitive advantages of all." This quote defined the 2015 Loomis Lacrosse Season as it battled through one of the toughest schedules in the country. In 2015, this team surpassed many expectations by not only competing with all of those teams, but even beating them. Signature wins over Trinity Pawling, Deerfield, Phillips Exeter, Choate and Taft and close games with Avon, Salisbury and Phillips Andover proved to the League that Loomis was back on the map. A final record of 10-6, LC proved hard to beat while on the road, going undefeated with a record of 9-0. From going 0-7 last year in the Founders League to going 5-2, placing second, and playing for the Founders League Championship against our rival Avon was quite a turnaround.
Many alums (and spectators) arrived on Father’s Day 2014 this year to play some pick up lacrosse in a red vs. white game. It was a beautiful morning in the sun. Many goals were scored and everyone had a good time. Next year, we are hoping for a larger turnout so that we can have a full game with some substations. Mark your calendars for Reunion Weekend — June 12-14, 2015!
