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 boys lacrosse team evolved into one of the strongest high school programs 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
According to the 2013 Laxpower website, Loomis Chaffee was ranked fifth nationally for most competitive schedule in boys high school lacrosse – only behind Maryland’s best high schools Gilman, Calvert Hall, Loyola-Blakefield, and Boys Latin. Loomis plays in the Founders League and New England West 1, arguably the most competitive lacrosse league in the country. League opponents for both the varsity and JV teams include Deerfield, Taft, Choate, Brunswick, Salisbury, Avon Old Farms, Westminster, Hotchkiss, Kent, Berkshire, and Northfield Mt. Hermon. Out of league opponents include Phillips Exeter and Phillips Andover, perennial lacrosse powerhouses in Northern New England. It is a daunting schedule but one that Loomis Chaffee is proud to have.
Each March the Pelicans travel to Florida (Where Pelicans feel most comfortable!) for preseason practice and scrimmages. In 2014, the team attended the 3D Lacrosse Spring training in St. Petersburg. There, Loomis had morning and afternoon practices each day and then at night, scrimmaged some great lacrosse schools.
