Welcome to Morriscountylacrosse

The sports of boys and girls lacrosse have a tremendous history in Morris County dating back to the early 60s when teams from Hanover Park and Boonton started passing the ball around in earnest. Since then boys high school teams in Mountain Lakes and Delbarton had their eras of dominating the sport on the high school level. Now the sport has flourished to the point where lacrosse programs at Madison, Kinnelon, West Morris, Mendham and many other area schools have had success in the sport at a statewide level. Girls teams at Montville thrived in the 70s and 80s and Mendham, Chatham and Mountain Lakes have developed into extremely competitive teams over the last decade and have battled the juggernaut South Jersey teams for recognition and honors.

Mark Kitchin has chronicled the lacrosse scene in Morris County for the Daily Record since 1987. In February of 2011, the Morris County newspaper had staff cuts which made him and several other members of the scholastic sports staff free agents. He initiated this blog in April of 2011 to continue to highlight the sport of lacrosse in the Morris County area and provide information that might not be readily available from other news sources. Enjoy.
