Coach: Rachel Hofbauer

Season’s with the Team: This is my second season as the Head Coach. I was very excited for this 2020 season. My seniors set a high standard for the underclassmen, who were ready to rise to the occasion.

2019 Record: 9-9 in a challenging division.

Captains: Senior captain, Cara Scancarella, would have ran our midfield. She is a work horse who never stops. Senior Captain, Courtney Dellerba, would have led on defense. With her speed and aggressiveness she would have been hard to beat. Lastly, Junior Captain, Ashley Zarb, would have also led on defense. Ashley has great defensive IQ and communication.
Other seniors, Daniella Elliot( Goalie) Alexandra Ingaro (Goalie) Samantha Nikovits (Attack)

Anticipated Varsity Players: We only graduated two players, so our varsity would remain the same as the 2019 season with some role changes.

Players on the Rise:
Vivian Testa, a Sophomore M/D. Rachel Weinstein, Junior Defender. Caroline Ohngemach, Junior Attack

Coach’s Outlook: I am optimistic, staying positive and praying these girls have a chance to play lacrosse this season.The seniors have worked so hard for this, it would be a shame if they did not have a chance to show everyone what they got. They are ALL IN and remain ALL IN, I am so proud of this group of girls.
