St. Sebastian’s believes in developing players at every level. We typically have 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.
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. In 2019, the team notched its first outright ISL title, going undefeated and earning a trip to the Geico National Tournament in Washington, D.C.. In the past three years, the Arrows have gone 41-3 in league play and earned non-league victories against IMG, Malvern Prep, Conestoga, Navy Prep, Taft, Westminster, New Hampton, and Exeter. They’ve been ranked in the top 15 in the Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse National Rankings in each of those seasons.
The Arrows have strong relationships with many of the club teams in the Boston area. Varsity players have also suited up for 3D New England, Clams, Harlem Lacrosse, Kings, Laxachusetts, and Piatelli Lacrosse.
