Welcome to the online home of the nationally ranked Darien High School Blue Wave boys lacrosse team. Every season the team embarks on a mission striving to continue the tradition of excellence that is embedded within the program. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. This program has a habit of succeeding.
The Wave are led by Jeff Brameier who enters his 33rd season as the only head coach this year. Under "Coach B", the program has a win/loss record of 526-132. The program has garnered national recognition with eleven state titles including the six straight (1997, 2000, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015), A LEAGUE RECORD 14 FCIAC championships (1992, 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2014, 2015), five state runner-up trophies, and twenty-five consecutive trips to the state "Final Four" from 1987-2012.
Coach B is excited to announce that the coaching staff is set for the 2016 season: We are proud to have Chris Sgritta – former 2002 DHS Lacrosse & Football Captain returning to his alma mater to take over as the Associate Head Coach in charge of defense, which will have Greg Lewis as an assistant on varsity and Keith McGivney Head JV coach assisted by Raul Bourgeious with Kevin Sullivan coaching on the freshmen level. Dan Marcus will be helping with goalies on all levels. The program is also lucky enough to have long time volunteer Mike Ryan.
