Athletics and More


The 2021 lacrosse team faced an incredibly difficult schedule playing Division I teams well into the second half of the season. They powered through with determination and a will to improve, cruising to the end of the season ranked #1 in their own Division II. With incredible momentum, they plowed through the quarter and semifinals to proudly stake their claim as hosts of the State Championship game on Dischinger Field. The game was open to visitors with masks, and #SeahorsePride was evident with a terrific showing of alumni support The championship was not meant to be however, and the Seahorses graciously accepted their place as State Runner Up. William Thompson (Richmond, VA), Brandan Bowers ’21 (Yorktown, VA), DJ Batton ’21 (Apex, NC), and Jaxon Gill ’22 (Ontario, Canada) earned All-State First Team honors. Kris Barnum ’22 (Gloucester, VA), Luc Danis ’22 (Cambridge, Canada), and Joel Lindner (Louisa, VA) earned Second Team honors. Gavin Lindner ’22 (Louisa, VA) was named USA Academic All-American. DJ Batton earned a scholarship to play NCAA Division I lacrosse at Boston University. Coach John Dehm was in his 8th season at the helm. He was assisted by Coach Mitch Macdonald ’13.
