Lacrosse - Boys' Varsity

Wilbraham & Monson Academy has maintained a quality tradition of academic, athletic and civic excellence throughout Western Massachusetts and the Pioneer Valley. Offering a “Global Vision” of academic achievement, WMA attracts the very best and the very brightest student-athletes from around the globe. The 2018 Titan lacrosse team will include these high achievers.

WMA lacrosse goes back many years. With deep respect for this Native American and First Nation game, WMA lacrosse has set a standard of excellence throughout the '80s and '90s with annual NESPEC championships. Coach Bill McCollough built a formidable program that continues to be respected and admired throughout Western Massachusetts.

Located just east of Springfield, Massachusetts, the WMA athletic facilities are first class and state-of-the-art. Titan lacrosse players are housed in a Athletic Complex that includes a swimming pool, high-tech weight center, athletic training complex, a large gymnasium, an all-weather track and a turf athletic field. The NCAA regulation turf field was inaugurated with the 2012 lacrosse season.
