Boys Varsity Lacrosse
Boys Varsity Lacrosse
The boys’ lacrosse team competes in the very strong Independent School League and also has a challenging out of league schedule. Every year, the team competes against some of the top teams in North America. In the recent past, these teams have included Hill Academy, IMG and Torrey Pines. Nobles won the ISL Championship in 2018 as well as back to back ISL Championships in ’05 and ’06. Over the past 14 years, the varsity team has been successful and consistent, finishing in the top three of the ISL every year that they did not win the championship. The JV and middle school teams have done a great job developing young talent by working on teaching the fundamentals of the game and supplying the varsity with polished lacrosse players.
Matt RowleyHead Coach At nobles since 2009
Coaching Philosophy: Player and personal development are at the core of our mission with the Nobles boys lacrosse program. With a focus on the development of high level skill and lacrosse IQ, we focus on developing players as a means to building a successful team. My main goal is to have our players completely prepared for their next challenges in life and lacrosse. We pride ourselves on sending players on to college that are ready to handle the level of skill and speed on the field as well the complexities of scheme they’ll see from their coaches. We embrace the strong lacrosse tradition at Nobles.
