The girl’s lacrosse team has had a bit of a makeover since last years season. With a new coach, new players and more goals to reach, this season has a lot in store. Starting off their season with new coach and physical education teacher Ms. Scheno, she guided the girls to three wins so far!

Juniors Julianna Quigg and Hailey Cammarata share what this years’ lacrosse team is all about.

  “We love [Ms.] Scheno! She is so positive and pushes us to work hard and get better everyday. It’s been so much fun with her” Cammarata says.

  “Coach Scheno has been extremely helpful because she played at the College level and has a lot of knowledge on the game that she can share with us” Quigg says.

Coach Scheno coming from both college and high school level playing experience has helped the girls when practicing and preparing for games.

A recent game against Jackson Memorial High School came full circle for Ms. Scheno considering that was her old high school she used to attend and play for.

  “It was a great feeling to get our first win of the season, especially against her old team. In the beginning we were down, but we were able to come together as a team and win the game” Quigg says.

With just three seniors that graduated last year there wasn’t much room for much more. Regardless, many underclassmen have joined to be apart of the team this year making it a very diverse and fun team to be on.

  “Our team this year is filled with such great people! It’s really cool because we’re all so different and we come together and get along so well. We have so much fun together and I’m glad we’re bonding so well this year because that’s something that HHSGVLAX (Hightstown High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse) has never really had” Cammarata says.

With a new coach and a new season ahead there is no telling what the HHS Girls Lacrosse team will achieve next!
