HOBOKEN BOYS’ LACROSSE: Redwings Will Reportedly Field a High School Team This Season
Hoboken High School will reportedly field a boys’ lacrosse team for the Spring of 2017.
“I am super proud and excited to announce that Hoboken High School has decided to add a boys lacrosse program and expand their girls lacrosse program for this spring,” says Sean Sargent, President of Hoboken Lacrosse Club—a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to introduce, nurture and promote the game of lacrosse in the City of Hoboken.
After years of running rec programs for both boys and girls at various age levels, the Hoboken Lacrosse Club was instrumental in developing the Hoboken Redwings Girls Lacrosse program, which had its inaugural season last year.
Now, with the news of a boys’ program, lacrosse is continuing to carve its niche here in Hoboken.
“Through a great deal of effort driven by members of the Hoboken Lacrosse Club and members of our community we’ve been able to secure some great support from US Lacrosse,” says Sargent. US Lacrosse is the national governing body of the sport, and helped give Hoboken Lacrosse Club a road map for success here in town.
“Between Girls & Boys Lacrosse offerings, student athlete participation contribution to Spring sports at HHS should be approximately an additional 120 students, about 20% of the total student body,” says Sargent. “Four grants from the Hoboken Redwings Booster Club & US Lacrosse have helped to make this possible.”
