The foundation of Mercersburg lacrosse is the development of the physical and mental game of each athlete, focusing on building athleticism, great stickwork, competitive composure, and winning attitudes. This foundation has provided the base for a program that, in recent seasons, has reached the highest level of play and accomplishments in team history.
Recent Mercersburg graduates have gone on to play on the collegiate level at a number of schools, including Bates, Campbell, Gettysburg, Hamilton, Marymount University, Michigan, Navy, Vassar, Washington & Lee, and Washington College (MD). A number of alumni now coach high school and club teams.
The offseason is prime time for Blue Storm lacrosse players to develop their athleticism and their game. Many varsity players compete on club teams in the summer, and a number of athletes play other sports in the fall while also playing in 3v3 and 5v5 tournaments, clinics, and showcases. Indoor sessions lead the winter, prepping the team for a spring-break training camp and the regular season.
The program trains and competes on Regents’ Field, an expansive synthetic-turf facility completed in 2009 and designated for primary use by female sports teams at Mercersburg. An adjacent natural-grass field serves as a secondary training option.
