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 have won the NEW1 crown four times (2014, 2017, 2018, and 2022), 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 2022, the Bruins went 15-1 overall, finishing the season ranked first in New England and second in the nation. The Bruins also won the inaugural Prep Nationals, avenging their one loss to Salisbury in the semifinals and topping Lawrenceville in the championship game.
Since becoming head coach in 2007, David Bruce holds a 202-57 overall record (.78) against one of the most competitive schedules in the country. He was recognized as the Western New England Coach of the Year in 2014, and 16 of his players have received All-American accolades during his tenure.
On the national stage, the Bruins have finished in the top-10 seven times (8th in 1998, 9th in 2014, 4th in 2017, 6th in 2018, 10th in 2019, 4th in 2021, and 2nd in 2022).
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 alumni have played lacrosse collegiately since Bruce became head coach.
