Brunswick’s lacrosse program has a storied tradition of lacrosse excellence. Since joining the New England West 1 Conference in 2006, the most challenging league in the region, the Bruins finished in the top four every season starting in 2009, while winning the title in 2014.
Entering the 2016 season, Brunswick owns a 118-53 record since ’06, and finished ninth in the nation in ’14. Beyond the challenging conference slate, the Bruins consistently schedule a number of the best regional and nationally ranked teams.
Since becoming head coach in 2007, David Bruce holds a 110-46 overall record, winning 71 percent of his games 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, eight of his players received all-American status during his tenure.
Graduation has not stopped many Bruins from combining their academic and athletic pursuits at the college level. Former Bruins are found at a number of top college programs, as 49 Brunswick School alums have played lacrosse collegiately since 2006.
Currently, 19 students have made college decisions on their college lacrosse futures. Colleges, including Duke, Georgetown, Michigan, North Carolina, Syracuse, Vermont, Virginia, and Williams along with Ivy League programs Dartmouth, Harvard and Penn will be the future home of a number of Bruins, and the list continues to grow.
