The Barrington High School Boys Lacrosse Team is looking to build upon the momentum gained following a very successful 2019 season!
In just our second season competing as a sanctioned IHSA spring sport, our Varsity advanced all the way to the State Elite Eight after winning Conference and Sectional Championships. Our JV team finished with a winning record and dominated conference play while the Frosh-Soph team controlled conference play with only one loss and finished strong winning 3 of their final 5 games against top non-conference competition.
The Broncos are now in search of their first ever IHSA Final Four appearance guided by newly named Varsity Head Coach Brian Niven, a former BHS lacrosse athlete who went on to play Division 1 Lacrosse with a successful career at Virginia Military Institute.
Coach Niven and his coaching staff look forward to building upon the success of the past, focused on all that remains to be accomplished this Spring! The 2020-2021 Season starts now!

CONGRATULATIONS to our lacrosse winners - Tommy Feeney and Nathan Nguyen!
Tommy is a player who has shown hard work and persistence toward both lacrosse and academics the last four years. He maintained a stellar record both in the classroom and on his college entrance exams. In addition, Tommy also created Lacrosse All Boundaries which partnered with Boys & Girls Club of Dundee Township to offer free 3 day youth lacrosse clinics for 60 boys and girls. Tommy was also active in Hands of Hope, PACT, Green Dot and he was a student ambassador at BHS.
Tommy is our definition of a student-athlete! He will be attending Southern Methodist University where he will enroll in the Cox School of Business and study Finance.
Nate has shown his leadership with his hard work and dedication to the team for several years. By encouraging and listening to other players on the team (even those senior to him) Nate boosted morale, the team's focus and always promoted team unity. He led by example on the field both during the season as well as leading off season conditioning and training. In addition, Nate has been an all conference selection each year at midfield, culminating in leading his team to an Elite Eight appearance in 2019. In addition to lacrosse, Nate was also a leader in the community and at BHS he served as President of Go Beyond Barrington, Ten Men's Acapella Group, a leader in PACT and Big Red.
Nate is also an outstanding student and will be attending the University of Wisconsin this fall where plans to major in Industrial Engineering.
