Undefeated

Johns Hopkins Men's Lacrosse in the 2005 Season

Lacrosse legend Bob Scott describes Johns Hopkins's 2005 men's lacrosse season as "the greatest in the university's history." The last time the Blue Jays claimed the NCAA lacrosse championship, in 1987, Head Coach David Pietramala was on the field as a sophomore defenseman. In Undefeated, photographer James T. Van Rensselaer and writer John Jiloty of Inside Lacrosse magazine tell the exciting story of the Blue Jays' perfect season and their dramatic play in the NCAA tournament.

Van Rensselaer's spectacular color photographs capture this unforgettable season in all its grit and glory. His lens brings you so close you can feel the intensity of a crucial faceoff, hear the ball rip through the net, see the sweat dripping into the eyes of a focused defender, and you almost have to flinch at collisions that seem just a split second away.

All of what made this season THE season for the Jays is here—from the seniors who led the team to four grueling overtime victories to the young players who performed so well in memorable games against perennial powers like Duke, Virginia, and Princeton. Undefeated bears witness to a high point in the long and illustrious tradition of Hopkins lacrosse and celebrates the players who brought the program back to the top.
