According to NJ.com, the Hillsborough High School Lacrosse team is ranked No. 12 in the state for the preseason. The team has its share of pivotal players, including senior Olivia Johnsen and junior Lisa Ross.

Matthew Gutowski is the new head coach and is very excited to make the transition from the middle school to varsity. He has major goals and plans for the team this upcoming season.

“My gain goal is simply to get this team playing at its best all season long,” Gutowski said.  “I want to help them all take their game to the next level and continue to grow as players. Hopefully, that will also equate to wins.”

The girls are very excited for the tough competition and they are looking for key wins this year. Johnsen is hoping to add her name to the the long list of athletes to score 100 goals in their lacrosse career at HHS. Assistant coach Kristina Dunphey is among those distinguished players and she still holds the scoring record at HHS.

Unfortunately, sophomore Tessa Norfleet tore her ACL in a practice earlier this year. Norfleet’s absence will be a tough loss for the team this year.

“Her skill and athleticism will be greatly missed on the field but she will continue to bring her positive attitude and knowledge to the team from the sideline,” Gutowski said.

On Mar. 29 the team will take on No. 11 Bernard’s at home on the turf at 4:00 p.m..
