EAST HANOVER, NJ- Senior lacrosse midfielder, Amanda Hoberman, collected her 100th goal early in the first half in a win over Parsippany on April 20th. Amanda, a four year varsity letter winner, has been playing since third grade. The team has been very successful this season and Amanda’s ability to break free and beat defenders straight up the field has been key for their offense.
Besides her accomplishments as a Lacrosse player, she has also played varsity Soccer and Basketball at Hanover Park. This is very uncommon in high school sports today, because of all the time and effort that it takes to be a three sport player. Amanda also takes part in other school activities and is a member of the Varsity Club.
Amanda will continue her education at Penn State University and has not decided on a major as of yet. Both her parents have been a role model for her and she loves hanging out with family and friends. She also makes it a point to give her fellow Lacrosse teammates a pep talk before each game. What drew her to Lacrosse was the fast pace of the game along with being part of a program that combines H.P. and Whippany Park students that created Park Lacrosse. Amanda is looking forward to continuing the teams winning ways and gaining a conference championship.
