Varsity Boys’ Lacrosse
The Cheshire Academy boys’ lacrosse program is one on the rise in the Western New England Prep School Athletic Conference. Under head coach Torrey Martone, who played at UMass, University of Hartford and was also on the coaching staff of Wesleyan’s 2018 national championship team, the Cats continue to grow as a program. Cheshire Academy focuses on preparing student-athletes for success at the next level on and off the field. Recently, alumni have gone on to play at Bowdoin College, Sacred Heart University and Wagner.
The Cats play a competitive schedule that includes a preseason trip in March to Orlando, Florida to gear up for the season and enjoy some team bonding. Homes games are played at Simosa Field.
Stewart Lindsay, a member of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame, started the lacrosse program at Cheshire Academy in 1962. The Cats produced Joe Della-Corte ’63, who went on to lead the nation in scoring at Fairleigh Dickinson in 1966. The Cats won the WNEPSLA Division III title in 1996.
