Almost every sports team at Benilde St. Margaret’s expects to find success at the varsity level. For decades, some of the most dominant sports teams in the state of Minnesota formed at Benilde St. Margaret’s. Some teams, of course, surpass that expectations with numerous state championships: The football team, the boys’ hockey team, dance team, girls’ soccer team. One team has seen the most success in the past years. That team is the boys’ lacrosse team.

The Benilde-St. Margaret’s School Red Knights Lacrosse team has been one of the dominant teams in the state of Minnesota since the beginning of high school lacrosse. In fact, they won the very first Minnesota State High School League State Champions in 2007 along with winning back to back in 2010 and 2011. Recently they have fallen just short of the championship, placing runner-up 2017 and 2018.  

So, what is it that has given the boys’ lacrosse team so much success? This article takes a look at what has made the lacrosse team so special over the years with first-hand accounts from past and present players, coaches, fans, and parents of players. This is the oral history of the Benilde-St. Margaret’s boys’ lacrosse dynasty. (Intro by Everett Palmer)
