Captains: Ronan Doherty '21, Anthony Romano '21, Russell Thorndike '21 Coaches: Bob Low, Greg Hefler
As fellow captains and collegiate teammates, Coaches Low and Hefler have reunited to bring the Groton School lacrosse program nearly fifty combined years of coaching experience. They strive to instill the elements that lead to success: commitment, enthusiasm, team unity, and work ethic. An annual spring trip to Florida enables the team to bond as a unit and physically prepare for the upcoming season.
Director of Athletics and Head Coach Bob Low brings a wealth of coaching experience from four years at Cardigan Mt. School (NH), four years at Avon Old Farms (CT), and twelve years at Holderness School (NH). He also has worked for several camps, such as Nike (CA and MA), NESLL (MA), Upper Valley (NH), Dartmouth (NH), Gamebreaker (Groton School), and Cardigan (NH) Lacrosse Camps. Active as a district chairman, Low also has served on Laxpower's National HS Top 25 Committee.
Coach Low, who teaches English at Groton, has earned NNE US Lacrosse Coach of the Year and Man of the Year honors; he has coached eleven high school All-Americans, three high school Academic All-Americans, and several NE Prep All-Stars on teams that have earned league championships and high rankings in both Eastern and NE Prep standings. Many of these players have also enjoyed successful college careers.
Assistant Coach Greg Hefler, a veteran NCAA lacrosse official, has extensive coaching experience at the youth, high school, and camp levels, and enjoyed a stellar playing career at Plymouth State College. His enthusiasm, wealth of experience, and devotion to kids help shape the personality of this program. Hefler also coaches football at Groton.
