In a note to LHS student athletes, Director of Athletics Patrick J. Genova wrote,"We would like to congratulate the Lancer Varsity Girls Lacrosse team who defeated the Millers of Millburn HS this afternoon on the soggy turf at LHS to capture their first Border Cup. Congratulations to all of the girls and Head Coach Dave Cohen, Lila Alfaro and Jodi Mensch."

Another milestone reached in the game was that Jordy Bonvini, one of the leading senior athletes on the team, scored her 200th career lacrosse goal. Jordy is the all-time leading lacrosse goal scorer at LHS by a wide margin.

"Jordy is the all-time leading lacrosse goal scorer at LHS by a wide margin and we would like to congratulate her too," said Genova.
