Seton Hall Prep’s Lacrosse program is recognized as one of the most competitive in the state of New Jersey. The Prep fields three teams: Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity, making it the second largest at Seton Hall. Prep teams compete during the regular season in the Fitch-Pitt Division, Super Essex Conference, enter the Essex County Tournament and enter the NJSIAA tournament in the Non-Public A bracket. The team has had tremendous team success, winning the Group IV State Championship in 2004 and winning the Essex County Championship in 2005, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. The Pirates have also won the Super Essex Conference every year since its inception in 2014. The Pirates' success is in part due to the dedication of our student-athletes, which can be seen in their continued achievements at the highest collegiate levels. Over the past six years The Prep has sent players to the most prestigious colleges: Notre Dame, Brown University, Johns Hopkins, Princeton, Cornell, Loyola, Villanova, Bucknell, Syracuse, Lehigh, University of Denver, Rutgers, Delaware, Denison, Bates, Franklin & Marshall, Boston University, and Colgate University, among others.

The strength of the Seton Hall Prep Lacrosse program lies in the people that make it up. Coaches, athletes and families are motivated, talented, energetic and determined to make a student-athlete's four year involvement a rewarding, life-changing experience.
