Lacrosse Boys Varsity
Competing in the very strong Lakes Region League, the Boys Varsity Lacrosse program also extends play to compete against the top programs from the Independent Schools League and the Founders League. A preseason training camp in Florida offers another chance to play against top-ranked programs in the country and prepare the team for the season.
Bulls have gone on to play lacrosse at a number of schools ranging from Division I to Division III, including Villanova University, Brown University, Dartmouth College, St. Bonaventure University, St. Lawrence University, Trinity College, Middlebury College, Bates College, Colby College, and Gettysburg College. Athletes have also recently committed to UMass Amherst, Merrimack College, Holy Cross, Hobart College, University of Vermont, and Bucknell College.
As reported earlier this spring, campus has seen a buzz of activity as Holderness School works to complete a number of projects in advance of the 2022-23 academic year.
Nine Holderness School student-athletes committed to play competitive college athletics on Wednesday, May 4. These students represent some of the top athletic talent in New Hampshire and New England and are testaments to Holderness School’s culture of academic and athletic excellence.
In a moving show of support for a teammate who lost his father to cancer at the beginning of the school year, all 29 members of the Holderness boys varsity lacrosse team shaved their heads to raise nearly $30,000 for the Sarcoma Center at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
There is no terrain too rugged, race too long, mountain too high, climate too severe, or obstacle too difficult to keep Mirna Valerio from feeling the power of her body and using movement as a form of liberation and wellness. In her New York Times bestselling book, A Beautiful Work in Progress, Valerio writes, “This body isn’t meant to be stagnant or cease moving. When we stop moving in mind, body, and spirit, we stop learning. When we stop learning, we stop living. Therefore, when we stop moving, we stop living. We stop evolving toward being the human we are destined to be.” This is the message she carried to Holderness School these past few days.
