Varsity Lacrosse - Boys
The Pingree boys’ lacrosse team competes in the Eastern Independent League and also plays a challenging schedule against competitive opponents from outside the league.
At Pingree, we promote discipline, respect, and patience both on and off the field. The coaching staff works to assess individual players’ strengths and weaknesses and to help develop them into well-rounded lacrosse players.
We compete using a team-based approach to the game. We do not rely on one player to be successful; we rely on the whole team. Our offense plays with patience and our defense plays with discipline. We look to add new players each year and remain a competitive force both outside and within the EIL.

Coach: Kevin Tersolo
Kevin has been a personal trainer for over 14 years and has developed players to play at the highest collegiate level, such as University of Virginia, Johns Hopkins and Division II national champion Lemoyne College. He is a former EIL and Eastern New England Prep Coach of the Year.
Asst. Coach: Kirk Bishop
Kirk Bishop has been involved with lacrosse since his playing days at Bucknell University (Captain, 1972) where he was named an All-Conference Defenseman during his senior year. He has coached at Mercersburg Academy (1972-1976), Bucknell University (1977-78), and Siena College (1979-80). After taking a few decades off to focus on career and family, Kirk was instrumental in founding Hamilton/Wenham Youth Lacrosse in the late 1990s and also helped to start the program at the Hamilton/Wenham High School. After serving on the Pingree Board for 10 years (2004 – 2014, the final 4 years as Board Chair), he returned to the sideline to assist Coach Tersolo in building the program to an unprecedented level of achievement.
Assistant Coach: Mike Montenegro
Mike was a three-time captain (2003-2005) at Tolland High School in Tolland, CT. In his senior year, he earned All-Conference, All-State and All-Area (Hartford Courant) honors. He also participated in the CT North/South Senior All-Star Game. From there, Mike went on to play lacrosse at Gordon College, where he was a two-time captain (2009 & 2010).
After graduating from Gordon, Mike took over the Assistant Lacrosse Coaching duties at Marblehead High School. In 2013, he helped coach the Magicians to 17 wins (a school record) and the program's first ever North East Conference Lacrosse Championship. He then went on to serve as the defensive coordinator for the Rivers School, helping the Red Wings to a 40-13 record during his three seasons with the team.
