SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team made the nearly two-hour drive to Long Island, taking on traditional top-tier program Smithtown West.
The Maroon and White made the most of their sojourn, as sophomore Julia Szynal notched a Hat Trick and added an assist, while classmate Anna Huntley-Robertson scored a pair of goals -- including her first-ever varsity tally -- in the Hilltoppers 9-7 victory over the Bulls.
Senior captain Maddie Collins had seven saves in goal for the victorious visitors.
Summit grabbed a 6-2 lead after the opening 25 minutes through six unassisted goals from five different scorers.
Szynal, Katia Carnevale, Huntley-Robertson, captain Cecily Stabler, Szynal again, and Anna Griffith all found the back of the net in the first half.
Szynal, Huntley-Robertson and Griffith -- assisted by Szynal -- had goals in a second half that saw the Hilltoppers outscored 5-3 but hang on to improve to 6-1 on the season.
Summit is back in action April 19 on the Upper Turf Field when they face Glen Ridge. Game time is set for 4 p.m.
