Varsity Lacrosse - Boys
St. Pius X added Lacrosse as a spring sport in 2015. The 2015 season marked the first founding of both boys and girls programs at the same time at any high school in Houston.
The boys program is headed Dr. Matthew Carr, who has coached Lacrosse in Houston since 1997. Coach Carr was the Defensive Coordinator for the Strake Jesuit program from its inception through its first 4 years, winning 2 Regional Texas High School Lacrosse League Championships and 2 THSLL State Championships. Coach Carr then took over the Stratford program guiding the Spartans to 2 Regional Championships. Coach Carr recently was the Head Coach of the 2014 Portuguese National Team in Denver, as well as founding a youth program (Houston Saints) for catholic middle school boys. St Pius X boys compete in the THSLL South Region in Division III.
Lacrosse is a game that combines the facets of other sports including football, soccer, hockey, and basketball. Modern day Lacrosse is a game of speed, quickness, agility, and finesse, punctuated by collisions. The best Lacrosse players, at the highest levels, play fundamental Lacrosse at breakneck speed. The finest players play with urgency, and Lacrosse is a high scoring fast paced game.
