1964 Varsity Boys Lacrosse Team


The 1964 boys lacrosse team had a season for the ages. Led by Coach Frank “Dorse” Dorsey, the team went undefeated, finishing 12-0. Among the many highlights of this season were big wins over Taft, Loomis, St. Mark’s, Choate, and Mt. Hermon. The season finished with a huge win over Kingswood, the lacrosse powerhouse of that time. The team was led by 12 returning lettermen, including Tuck Cantrell and Hall of Famer Stephen Durant, who were both All New England selections in 1963. Among the new faces were Carter Hunt on defense, Carl Stevens, Ed Green, Cliff Sterrett, and Bob Foster at midfield. Lacrosse was growing in popularity and attracted some of the school’s best athletes. Offensively, the team was led by co-captains Hall of Famer Paul Doty and Stephen Durant. Durant became the top midfield scorer in all of prep New England. Doty led a potent attack, finishing with 28 goals and 44 points to earn an All New England selection. The team outscored opponents 90-31 on the season, an average of 9-2. The team’s undefeated season earned it the Masters League championship.
