Spring 2018

Boys Lacrosse

The Cate boys lacrosse team’s history dates back six decades to when it competed in the first-ever interscholastic games in the state of California against rivals Ojai Valley School and Thacher School in 1967. With a strong tradition that has unified alumni for over a half-century, the boys lacrosse program continues to maintain their place as one of the top small-school programs in California. Calling the picturesque Nion Tucker, Jr. ’40 Field its home, the Rams lacrosse program teams begin the season in mid-February, nestled below the rugged Santa Ynez mountains and a view of the iconic Pacific Ocean to the south. The team competes in the Channel League (Dos Pueblos, San Marcos, Santa Barbara, & Thacher). Each season, the varsity team competes against alumni for the Denison Cup, named in honor of longtime coach Paul Denison ’79. This year’s Alumni Lacrosse Game is scheduled for Saturday, May 12, at 1:30 p.m. on Nion Tucker, Jr. ’40 Field.
