SPARTA, NJ-The Sparta High School girls lacrosse team now has two one-hundred goal players.  Mackenzie Maguire and Julia Silversti have reached that impressive benchmark.  These Juniors are just as impressive in the classroom as they are on the field.  Maguire has committed to play lacrosse at Mary Washington University.  Silvestri, yet to commit, is "leaning toward attending and playing at Ithaca College," according to her coach, Kate Brennan.

Other Juniors on the team, Maggie Jent and Julia Corrice have also committed to play division one lacrosse on scholarship.  Jent will attend Wagner, Corrice will play for Quinnepiac.    Coach Brennan is also talking to colleges on behalf of Junior center Taryn Penna.  Penna is a rarity that competes in both lacrosse and softball.

Senior Beth McGraw is also nearing her one hundredth goal.  She will be playing lacrosse at Ramapo University next year.  Bridget Den Boer has committed to play goalie at Goucher College next year as well.

"Though we lost on Friday, we had been on a seven game winning streak, and we hope to achieve success in the upcoming state tournament, " Brennan said. "I love this team. They have overcome some hefty obstacles and demonstrated a level of grit and toughness that is unbelievable. I ask a lot of them, and they come through day in and day out, impressing me more and more each and every day. I am blessed to be their coach."

They begin the state tournament on Thursday at home against Old Tappan.
