LIVINGSTON, NJ — As a senior on the seventh-seeded Livingston High School (LHS) girls lacrosse team, Tatum Peacock became the fifth girl in LHS history to accomplish her 100th career goal in the sport last week—earning her the title of Dr. Michael Rieber’s Livingston Athlete of the Week.

Peacock scored four goals in a 14-5 victory over Millburn on April 15, including her 100th career goal. To date this season, Peacock has 25 goals and three assists, which have helped propel the Lancers to their current record of 5-2.

“Tatum is tenacious and one of those athletes that would run through a wall for you if you would ask her to,” said head coach Jodi Mensch. “Her experience and confidence on the field is instrumental to our offensive sets.”

Mensch added that as a senior captain, Peacock gives the team “that spark” when it needs it the most. She said Peacock is also in tremendous cardiovascular condition and can give 100 percent through an entire game. 

“Her ability to outmaneuver her opponents and re-defend in the offensive end is done tirelessly,” she said.
