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."

"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.
