A Brief History of MHS Lacrosse
Lacrosse started as a school sport in 1912 when it entered the schools section of the VLA winning one game in their first season. An informal Old Boys team started two years later in 1914, when the Old Boys played the school team in June, with the school team winning 17 to 4. The school and the Old Boys team continued to regularly play each other for years.
MHSOB ceased playing in the VALA competition circa 1973. Many of their remaining senior players moved to Chadstone or Malvern, several of whom went on to represent Victoria and Australia. MHSOB played their matches at the picturesque Como Park in South Yarra, not far from the Yarra River and famous Como House. MHS played two games in 1981 against Oakleigh Tech and Caulfield Tech. Lacrosse had ceased being played as a MHS sport sometime in the 1980s. Today, lacrosse is offered as part of the summer and winter sports program at MHS.
