In some towns, lacrosse is a relatively recent phenomenon. Other towns led the way by blazing the trail with the early establishment of high school lacrosse programs.
Ipswich, Mass., is such a town.
High school lacrosse was established in Ipswich in 1967. Glenn Foster, coach of the boys program for the past 33 years, first played for the team as a freshman in 1969.
Looking back on the beginnings of his program, Foster spoke of the team’s first coach, Arthur Carey.
