So far in the postponed spring sports season, the Hillsborough Raiders boys lacrosse team has been off to a shaky start. With an overall record of 2-7 and five games left in the season, it is possible for the boys to pull through with a 7-7 record. Hard work and dedication have been demonstrated by the Raiders so far this season with their unrelenting desire to win and get better.

So far this season senior Andrew Ryan leads the team in goals with 12 in just nine games and is tied with junior Ryan Vierbuchen for 16 points in the 2021 season. Vierbuchen has the highest amount of assists for the Raiders with seven so far this year. Junior Samir Guzman has participated in 14 face-offs and has won 11 for the Raiders. Senior goalie Joey Schwartz has had 142 saves this season so far leading the Raiders’ defense.

With five games left this season, the Raiders look to pull through for an even record to finish out the year. The final home game of the season takes place on May 19 against Pingry at 4:30 pm. The remainder of the season will be away games against Immaculata, Princeton Day School, North Hunterdon, and Bernards.
