The Stowe Raiders were the 2013 champions of the Mountain League with a 10-1 regular season record. Last year the boys were co-champions with Harwood, but this year they held the spot by themselves. Stowe ended their year with an 11-6 record following their quarterfinal playoff loss to U-32. The Raiders are a young team, with the average grade just a sophomore, so they should be a powerhouse in years to come. The boys were coached by Mike Loughran.
A huge award has been given to Stowe senior Kai Norden, who has been picked for the U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American team. Only three spots are allotted to Vermont.
Picked for All-League First Team were Andrew Colyer, (senior, midfield), Connor Loughran (sophomore, attack) and Lucien Gravel (junior, defense).
Making the All-League Second Team were Norden (senior, midfield), Andrew Chambers (junior, defense), Alec Wehse (sophomore, long stick midfield), Harry Colyer (sophomore, attack) and Graham Geissler (sophomore, goalie).
All-State honors go to Andrew Colyer (first team) and Loughran and Wehse (honorable mentions).
