Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse – CONFERENCE RUNNER-UP

Boys’ JV Lacrosse 

The Raider lacrosse team embarked on a season marked by dedication, growth, and teamwork, setting the stage for remarkable progress. With a strong emphasis on cultivating a cohesive culture on and off the field, the team’s journey spanned four months, beginning with two months of intensive practice. Despite the lack of early matches, the team remained committed to their training, setting high standards for themselves as athletes and individuals. 

A highlight of the season was an impressive six-game winning streak, with both the JV and varsity teams contributing three victories each. This streak showcased the team’s unity and determination to succeed. Individual performances were also noteworthy, with over five players achieving multiple goals throughout the season. This diverse scoring ability added depth to the team’s offensive strategy. In clutch moments, the Raiders displayed their resilience with three overtime victories, two for the varsity team and one for JV. These wins underscored the team’s ability to perform under pressure and seize opportunities.

The season saw a commendable performance from both the JV and varsity programs. The JV team concluded with a 3-2-1 record, while the varsity team finished with a solid 7-4 record, showcasing their competitive edge. One of the season’s successes was the limited number of injuries, allowing all players to make healthy returns to the field.  This underscored the team’s commitment to conditioning and injury prevention. Coach Isaac Newland said, “Overall, the Gulliver Raiders’ season was characterized by perseverance, teamwork, and a commitment to excellence both on and off the lacrosse field. As they reflect on their accomplishments, the team can take pride in the foundation they’ve laid for future success.”

Water Polo

The water polo team finished their season with a final record of 3-2. Led by MVP, eighth grader Alejandro Altman, the Raiders improved immensely from their season last year. With many new faces to the program, rookies played a major role in the team’s success, with outstanding performances from Nico Altman, David Rodriguez, Andrej Bakrac, and Martin Dangond. Some of the returning student-athletes made some great strides in their development as well. Sam Foemmel, Joaquin Colaq, Antonio Carom, Lorenzo Filippi, and Eduardo Cerquiera all made major contributions throughout the season with their hard work, and desire to win. The future is bright for the Raider water polo program, as these graduating eighth grade student-athletes prepare to play at the high school varsity level and train during the off season.


Congratulations to our Middle School Cheerleaders on winning the 2024 USCA National Cheer & Dance Championship! On April 14, the cheer team competed in the non-tumbling category at the Broward Convention Center.  Led by Head Coach Alexandra Rodriguez, their hard work and dedication paid off, as the Raiders won a 3-PEAT national title.  The squad practiced hard and worked on their routine all spring season which definitely showed.
