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 begins his 34th season as the only head coach this year. Under "Coach B", the program has a win/loss record of 549-132. The program has garnered national recognition with twelve state titles including the six straight (1997, 2000, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016), A LEAGUE RECORD 15 FCIAC championships (1992, 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016), five state runner-up trophies, and twenty-five consecutive trips to the state "Final Four" from 1987-2012.
