La Salle Athletics

WE ARE TEAMMATES.

A tradition of excellence on the athletic field as well as the classroom, La Salle competes in the New York City Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSSA) leagues in baseball, basketball, bowling, handball, soccer and track and field.

Basketball

La Salle is the proud owner of one of the greatest basketball traditions in New York City. Our students have been competing on the court since 1906… a mere 10 years after Dr. James Naismith invented the sport in Springfield, Mass. La Salle has produced seven NBA players, including Dick McGuire ’43, Ed Bartells ’44, Tom Owens ’67, John Roche ’67, Ed Elisma ’93, Shammgod Wells ‘95, and Ron Artest ’97. La Salle also boasts 11 city championships—1914, 1915, 1916, 1946, 1954, 1960, 1962, 1967, 1971, 1997 and 2004. And we are still going strong — in 2015-2016, both our freshman and junior varsity won the CHSAA B Division City Championships.

Although our East Village school is noted for our baseball and basketball programs, La Salle’s bowling program is gaining in prominence. Dedicated to the building of school community through sports, La Salle’s bowling team continues to grow. Junior varsity and varsity teams practice and compete in locations throughout Manhattan and Queens. Junior varsity won the city championship in 2013 – 2014 and 2014-15, while varsity won the city championship game in 2015-16.

Soccer

La Salle’s soccer team has been quite successful in the last decade. Speed, hand-eye coordination and heart are all skills the team acquires as it practices and competes on the field. The team plays in the fall semester and practices every day throughout the season. In 2014-15, La Salle lost in the quarter finals.

Track & Field

The Track and Field team is actually three sports and consists of three different seasons: Cross Country Running (Fall season), Indoor Track and Field (Winter season) and Outdoor Track and Field (Spring season). Endurance, leadership, guts and dedication are prized in these sports, and we are always looking for a few good men. La Salle's track teams of the past have been some of the best in NYC history, and we are on the rise again. Practices are held every day after school, and meets are on the weekends,(usually Saturdays).
