The Great Tradition


As an annual tradition the boys lacrosse team takes a trip down to Santa Barbara to compete against The Cate School and The Thatcher School. Stevenson has a lot of history with these schools since the first interscholastic high school lacrosse game was played between these three teams in a tournament. In years past the competition has been really tough and we have been lucky to come away with one win. However, this year we went down and won 2-0, defeating both teams with ease. This felt great given our three year winless streak. This is also a great way for the entire team to bond and come together as a whole unit in a high-pressure situation. Even though this trip has a lot have history and the games are high-stakes, we still had fun. When we first arrived in Santa Barbara we had about 4 hours till game time so the coaches decided to take us to the beach and let us loosen up before the game. It was so much fun to see the coaches get in the ocean with the players and have a good time in the freezing cold water. I always look forward to this trip because there is so much history, and the underlying rivalry between the two schools makes this trip even more exciting.


Hello, my name is Matt and I am a junior from Monterey, California. In my spare time I enjoy going to the beach, hanging out with my friends and family – and of course, sports! My favorite team sport at Stevenson is basketball, and am also on the lacrosse and football teams. I am also a part of Student Council and a Green Key Ambassador.

Choosing Stevenson was easy for me, growing up in the area, and having always known it was a great school with a lot of caring teachers. The Sophomore Wilderness Expedition is one of my favorite Stevenson traditions – not only did I have a great time spending 11 days in the wilderness, but I learned so much about myself.
