Phillips Exeter Academy Lacrosse Chandler Jean-Jacques

Chandler Jean-Jacques '19 is the recipient of both the Philip Curtis Goodwin '25 Award and the Holleran Family Girls Lacrosse MVP Award. 

Exeter’s spring coaches put a stamp on the 2018-19 year as they announced their respective team award winners. Each season the selection of recipients grows increasingly difficult, especially during a spring season that saw Big Red experience great success. Exeter brought home championships in baseball, cycling and volleyball, and saw strong performances at regional competitions from softball, boys and girls crew, and boys and girls track and field. The spring season was capped off with an outstanding Exeter/Andover weekend on campus last Saturday, where Big Red claimed victories in six of the nine contests against the Blue.

We are grateful to our student-athletes, families, friends and supporters of Big Red athletics for making this spring one to remember. Please view the individual award winners below.
