SUMMIT, NJ - Post-game on 'Senior Night', the Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team honors each on-the-cusp-of-graduating team member with a procession that sees each player and their parents parade beneath the raised sticks of their teammates.

There was another senior procession during The Maroon and White's game versus Kent Place School and, again, it featured the seniors -- a goal parade. A total of 11 Summit goals in the contest were scored by seniors, more than enough to carry the Hilltoppers past the Dragons 15-7 under the lights on the Upper Turf Field.

Senior captain Cecily Stabler scored five times, and fellow classmate and captain Stella Spotts along with senior Anna DiSibio each had Hat Tricks, as Summit improved to 13-2 on the season. Senior captain Maddie Collins had six saves in goal for the Hilltoppers, while Colleen McAloon (4) and Caroline Lubow (2) combined to notch six of Kent Place's seven goals.

Given the dynamic inherent to 'Senior Night' festivities -- tons of family and equal amounts of emotion -- the game itself often takes on a unique performance vibe comprised of bits of high intensity, ragged play, celebration and -- in the case of Summit -- a faux finality, given the fact that the Hilltoppers are set to begin what they hope to be a long, post-season tournament run.

This game lived up to its 'billing' and delivered all of the above.

Summit surrendered a goal in the opening 30 seconds and then went on a five-goal run of senior LAX living, with two from Stabler and a pair from Spotts sandwiching a tally from DiSibio. Stabler would complete her Hat Trick later in the half to make it six straight senior scores, and sophomore Julia Szynal would fire two goals after that, all of which resulted in the teams going to the break with the Hilltoppers leading 8-3.

In a repeat of the game's opening, the Dragons got on the board early in the second half, but Summit answered with a run of goals by Emily Paytas, Anna Huntley-Robertson and DiSibio.

Up 11-4, the Hilltoppers switched off a tad and subsequently gave up back-to-back goals. They responded by rattling off the next four scores, as a Stabler 'double', Spotts and DiSibio combined to reprise their first-half scoring run, a jaunt that made certain a result that was never really in question.

Summit will next travel to Morristown May 12 to take on the Colonials in a game recently added to the schedule and designed to sharpen their competitive edge pre-tourney. Opening draw is set for 4:30 p.m.
