The history and success of the Loomis Lacrosse Program is well known throughout New England due in part to the program’s founder and head coach for 49 years, Jim Wilson. Starting as a club sport in 1959, the lacrosse program evolved into one of the strongest high school teams in the country. In that time, Wilson compiled a 401-196 record, won many Founders League Championships and more importantly, mentored hundreds of young men throughout his career. Loomis has produced dozens 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). Overall, the Loomis Lacrosse Program is very proud of its rich and successful history.
The Loomis Chaffee Schedule 2014 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 2014 Loomis Lacrosse Season as it battled through one of the toughest schedules in the country. Although Loomis Chaffee finished the season with a record of 4-12, eleven of its games were decided by 1-2 goals, including overtime losses to Kent and Hotchkiss and a one-goal loss to Taft. Highlights of the season were one-goal victories over Phillips Andover 8-7 and a 10-9 home victory over Northfield Mount Hermon, a game where Loomis scored 7 goals in the fourth quarter to come back for the victory. Led by a hard working and dedicated senior group, the 2014 team fought in each game and established a positive but competitive culture for future teams. The 2015 team will return three of its four leading scorers from 2014: Max Cushman, Thomas Elcock, and Declan Moylan. Also returning in 2015 will be goalie Cole Poyfair, along with defenders Zach Giuttari, Alex Esposito, Sam Kent, Zach Zavalick (facoeff specialist), and Sebastian Dovi. This group, along with many other returners and new players, will ensure a strong 2015 campaign. First year head coach Bill Lee was very pleased with the 2014 season. “This senior class was tremendously hard working and resilient,” said Lee. “They never gave up. Our team became stronger as the season progressed. They set the bar high for our returning and new members in 2015. Although our record may not indicate it, our season was incredibly successful in so many ways. We wish the seniors the best in college.”
Many alums (and spectators) arrived on Father’s Day 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!
