Varsity Lacrosse - Boys
Practice Schedule TBA
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.
