SUMMIT, NJ - Scoring seemingly every time they had the ball, the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team whizzed past Sparta 18-9, opening its 2018 regular season with an uneven performance but, ultimately, a comprehensive victory on the Upper Turf Field.

As a program with the highest of standards and expectations, the nine goals allowed and some of the ball handling miscues did not sit well with Summit Head Coach Mike Walsh but, for every bump in the road on the afternoon, there were twice as many Maroon and White scores, with the home team's offensive firepower clearly too much for the Spartans.

Junior Katia Carnevale scored six goals, and senior Emily Paytas added four more, as the Hilltoppers blew open a 5-4 first half scoreline with nine straight strikes before the break.

Eight girls total from the 07901 found the back of the net, with senior captain Helen Louise Johnson and junior Julia Szynal each netting a pair, and senior captain Anna Turk, classmate Ava Spotts, along with juniors Anna Huntley-Robertson and Anna Griffith all scoring once. 

Senior captain Amy Martino was credited with nine saves. Huntley-Robertson also had three helpers.

Kaitlin Mead (3), Lauren Neufeld (3) and Hailey Mead (2) paced Sparta.

Summit (1-0) is back in action April 2, traveling to Glen Ridge for a 4 p.m. face-off.

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
