Lacrosse - Varsity Boys
Rutgers Prep lacrosse has a strong tradition of winning. In the past 10 years the program has been to 9 Prep B finals, captured 3 Prep B titles, and won a state title in 2013.
Alumni from over this time period have graduated to play at prestigious academic and athletic institutions including Dartmouth, West Point, Bucknell, Richmond, Rutgers, Boston, Stony Brook, Drexel, NJIT, Hartford, Union, Haverford, Hamilton, Lynchburg, LeMoyne, Vassar, and Trinity.
The culture of Rutgers Prep lacrosse is built around “Freedom through Discipline” and an understanding that the work we put in today will be the joy we experience tomorrow. The team embraces Fleet Mentality where “rowing” together is the best way for all to succeed. Consistent with the school, the Rutgers Prep lacrosse team teaches the whole person; mind, body, and spirit. Better people make a better fleet!
