The men’s lacrosse program has been wildly successful in past years, with a state championship  in 2011 and in 2016, and they are looking to have a three-peat this year. The team is coached by Richard Thompson.

Last season the team was undefeated until the playoffs where they lost their first game, to Glenelg. It was the first defeat in two years. The team is using the loss from last year to encourage them to win states this year.

Glenelg beat Linganore 6-4 in the 3A/2A state semifinals.

This past fall, two players on last years lacrosse team committed to colleges to play lacrosse.  Jordan Swoyer committed to play Division 1 men’s lacrosse at Queens University of Charlotte, North Carolina. Tristan Drenner committed to play for  Wingate University’s lacrosse team.

“We have a very solid team this year.  We want nothing but another ring,” says Swoyer.

Some tough schools from last year are Urbana, Oakdale and Middletown. There is good competition among these schools. 

As a whole, the team will have some strengths because of returning players. The returning players include Patrick Coggins, Erick Stutz, and Tristan Drenner. 

One of the coaches this year is Jordan Swoyer’s father, Stan. He has been coaching at Linganore High school for eight years. Richard Thompson started coaching when his son made the team as a freshman.
