Team Awards:

The Howard Benedict Coach's Award:  In 2013, after 39 years, many Alumni thought it was appropriate to name an award after the man who built our program, Howard Bendict.  This award will be given annually to the senior who represents the following qualities:  A multi-sport athlete, a great leader, a person who inspires others to be better, and most of all…a player who will do anything for his teammates (someone everyone can count on to have their back!).  

 

The Class of 1996 Helmet Award Recipient:  This award will be given annually to the Senior who is the toughest on the team.  The senior will sign an old Red Bacharach NC Helmet, which will be displayed in the lacrosse office (the helmet is the last Red Bacharach helmet ever to be worn by a NCHS team in 1996).

 

Boys Lacrosse Player of the Year Award:  This award will be given annually to the NCHS player who played the best throughout the entire season.  

 

Boys Lacrosse Academic Achievement Award:  This award will be given annually to the Junior with the highest Academic Profile.
