From Eric Krieger, Lacrosse Coach:

The Bay Lacrosse Program started in the Spring of 2011 with 15 players , most of whom had never picked up a lacrosse stick before. We practiced 3 days/week, knowing that we weren’t going to have any opponents, but preparing like we were going to play a full season.

Enter 2012, the inaugural Varsity Lacrosse Season at The Bay School.

This year we have 26 players; some experienced, some new, freshmen through seniors. We’re starting a tradition of lacrosse with this team, a family. Alumni will be able to look back on their experience with pride on what they’ve started. As members of this team go on to college, pursue their careers and start their families, they’ll always have the connection with future teams that they were the ones who pioneered this program. It’s a program that’s founded on hard work, mental and physical toughness, and putting the team first. The players of the 2012 Inaugural Bay School Lacrosse Team will look upon this season with tremendous pride, accomplishment, and the confidence that they have what it takes to succeed in whatever they put their mind to.

Thank you to Steve Glass and Erica Kajdasz in the athletic office for their 100% support and guidance in getting this team off the ground. And to two unbelievably committed and experienced assistant coaches, All-American Dartmouth ’05 Midfielder Ben Grinnell, and Honorable Mention All-American UC Davis ’11 Defenseman Greg Arch who have put their heart into this program and into the players. Go Breakers!
