SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School boys varsity lacrosse team has been seeded first in the NJSIAA North, Group 3 State Lacrosse Tournament, and will open play May 17 at home against 16th-seeded Wayne Valley.
Head coach Jim Davidson and his Hilltoppers, should they advance past the Indians, would take on the winner of the matchup pitting ninth-seeded West Morris against eighth-seeded Morris Knolls. That game would take place May 20, again at home.
Scotch Plains-Fanwood, at No. 4, is the next highest seed behind Summit in The Maroon and White's half of the bracket. Roxbury, seeded second overall, and third-seeded Northern Highlands occupy the top seeds in the other half of the bracket.
Summit is 12-4 on the season, but comes into tournament play on the heels of back-to-back defeats. Offensively, they are paced by Harry Kilkowski (34) and Corey McManus (32), who have scored 66 goals combined. Goalie Will Vitton has been extremely sharp in goal and has made 117 saves this campaign while allowing just 3.07 goals-against per game.
Summit will face Wayne Valley May 17 at Investors Bank Field. Face-off is set for 4:30 p.m.
