Philosophy

As headmaster Bill Burke says, the order of the day is to love God, work hard, and take good care of one another. This philosophy extends to the lacrosse field, where teamwork and camaraderie are prioritized over wins and losses, and the senior leaders establish a culture of academic excellence, community engagement, and brotherly respect.

Program

St. Sebastian’s believes in developing players at every level. In 2018 there were over 100 boys playing middle school or high school lacrosse. In addition to the Varsity team, St. Sebastian’s fields a Junior Varsity, a Third team (9th grade), a Fourth team (8th grade), and a Fifth team (7th grade). Each squad is coached by at least two full-time faculty members.

Tradition

Lacrosse at St. Sebastian’s began in the spring of 1981, forty years after the school’s founding. Since then the program has grown into a top contender in the Independent School League, the largest and most competitive prep school lacrosse league in New England.

In 2012, the Arrows earned a share of the ISL championship for the first time, and they repeated the feat in 2017. 2017 was the winningest season in school history, and featured games against opponents from Connecticut, Virginia, Florida, and Canada and an appearance on ESPN in the Geico High School National Tournament, held in Washington, D.C. In the past two years, the Arrows have gone 26-3 in league play and notched non-league victories against IMG, Navy Prep, Taft, Westminster, New Hampton, and Exeter.
