The Holderness girls’ varsity lacrosse team is historically a strong, competitive program. With a focus on work ethic, daily improvement, teamwork, and a joy for the sport, the program has had many successful seasons. Athletes begin training at the end of March with a trip to warmer climates; the competitive season begins in early April and runs through early to mid-May. Alumni of Holderness lacrosse have gone on to play in strong programs throughout the country, including Brown University, University of Vermont, Boston College, Bates College, and Colorado College.
