Boys’ Lacrosse

Gould Academy offers a highly competitive boys’ lacrosse program that prepares student-athletes for college-level play. Through a combination of strong recruiting, aggressive scheduling, knowledgeable coaching, and superb facilities, Gould Lacrosse is a premier program in Northern New England.

Boys’ lacrosse teams compete against teams from the Maine Association of Independent Schools Athletic Directors (MAISAD), New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC), and the Northern New England Lacrosse League (NNELL).

Gould players have been named as U.S. Lacrosse All-Americans and have gone on to play college lacrosse at schools such as Stevenson University, Salisbury University, Bellarmine University, St. Michael’s College, Bishop’s University, Tufts University, and much more high-level academic and athletic universities and colleges.
