Brunswick’s lacrosse program has a storied tradition of lacrosse excellence. Since joining the New England West 1 (NEW1) Conference in 2006, the most challenging league in the region, the Bruins won the NEW1 crown three times (2014, 2017 and 2018), while finishing in the top four every season dating back to 2009.
Beyond the difficult conference slate, the Bruins consistently schedule a number of the best regional and nationally ranked teams every season.
In 2021, the Bruins went 14-3 overall, finishing ranked 4th in the nation. The only setbacks were losses to the #1, #3, and #22 ranked programs.
Since becoming head coach in 2007, David Bruce holds a 187-56 overall record (.77), against one of the hardest schedules in the country. While coach Bruce was recognized as the Western New England Coach of the Year in 2014, 15 of his players received All-American accolades during his tenure.
On the national stage, the Bruins have finished in the top-10 six times (8th in 1998, 9th in 2014, 4th in 2017, 6th in 2018, 10th in 2019, and 4th in 2021).
Graduation has not stopped numerous Bruins from combining their academic and athletic pursuits at the college level. Former Bruins are found at a number of top college programs, as over 100 Brunswick alums have played lacrosse collegiately since Bruce became head coach.
