Nashua lacrosse community will long remember Mike Bolduc

It was a busy summer, and an even busier start to the fall, as expected, but time to catch up with a few local and regional tids and bits: First, this is waaaay overdue, but has to be recognized. Right around the same time the late Nashua Silver Knights pitching coach Tom Bowles passed away in early June, another key person in Nashua sports lost his life. Mike Bolduc, the former Nashua High School boys lacrosse coach, lost his battle with cancer back in early June while living in Sandy River Plantation, Me., at the young age of 58. Bolduc was a longtime educator at the high school level in Nashua (1982-2009), but in the local sports world, he really was Nashua’s Father of Lacrosse. Bolduc had the great vision to start a club lacrosse program at the then single Nashua High School in the late 1980s. He knew that the sport, then only played by a few high schools in the state, would take off in no time. He had the vision to get as many athletes involved in it as he could, knowing at the time his club program was still no match for a Pinkerton or a Londonderry, the two biggest schools in the state playing the sport at the time against prep school competition. And now look at the sport in Nashua and around the state today.
