Manhasset Lacrosse is an enduring tradition which began in Manhasset, NY in the 1930's. It is a term which refers to the traditional dominance of the Manhasset High School varsity lacrosse program among lacrosse playing high schools all around the nation. This is because Manhasset has been the breeding ground to many of the sports greats, such as Jim Brown, John Driscoll, John Gagliardi, Dan Denihan, and many others. Manhasset sees many of its alumni attend top national universities and Ivy League schools on lacrosse recruitment. Manhasset has been two time NY State lacrosse champions, winning the state title in 1995, and in 2004. In addition, Manhasset's lacrosse team makes the playoffs nearly every year. Its current rivalry is with Garden City High School, which is the oldest rivalry in high school lacrosse. This game is known as the Woodstick Classic, an event attended by thousands every year. "Every so often, a Fab Five or Fab Four come along, and bring the program to greatness. The original Fab Five were known as John Gagliardi, Tim Goettelmann, Dan Denihan, Nick Murtha, and Blake Miller. These Five brought the program to greatness in the 1990's, as the most recent Fab Four were Gavin Petracca, Chris Finn, Cullen Molinari, and Chris Peyser, who led the team to a perfect undefeated season in 2004." The program's current head coaches are 30 year veteran Bob Rule, and William Cherry, who assumed the job as 30 year veteran Alan Lowe retired in October 2006. Cherry has coached the JV lacrosse program for over 20 years, and varsity football for 25. Keith Cromwell has also stepped on board as the Offensive Coordinator having personal experience on Attack with the Long Island Lizards.
