RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph Lady Rams lacrosse team, led by senior captains and three year starters TT Naslonski and Sutton Todd, have shot out of the gate with a 4-1 record to start the 2017 season.
After winning only five games in the 2016 season, grabbing four wins in their first five games has confidence riding high, as a big improvement over last season seems inevitable.
“Our record now has given us the confidence to realize our full potential as a team and to realize how far we are capable to go in the county and state tournaments,” said Naslonski. “We have many goals listed on a poster in our locker room which gives us motivation for every game and practice.”
Todd, the teams' starting goalie, has made 55 saves on the season, and in the process surpassed 400 total saves for her career.
Roma Hladky has picked up 15 points with 10 goals and 5 assists this season, while Jillian Fantuzzi has added 7 goals.
Naslonski, a midfielder who will play at Rutgers next spring, has enjoyed a dynamite start to her season as the teams’ leading scorer, netting 34 goals with six assists in those five games.
“Our team unity has been clicking a lot for us, and our coaches preach that we must figure out how to play together,” said Naslonski. “As a team, we are starting to realize the strengths of each other and how to use these strengths to create plays and off ball movement.”
The Lady Rams lone loss was to Mendham in game three. Their most recent win was a 10-8 victory over Kinnelon. Randolph plays Morristown Beard next at home on April 18.
