SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Field Hockey team got two goals from junior Megan Abate and defeated Ridge 3-2 in their annual 'Pink Out' game on the Upper Turf Field.
In what Summit Head Coach Jennifer Schwarzenbek called "a total team effort," Charlotte Greer added a goal, Ciara Lawlor had two assists, and goalie Maddie Gaeta had 22 saves.
The team also reached their goal -- via a combination of commemorative T-Shirt sales and a bake sale -- of raising more than $1,000 for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.
The 'Pink Out' event honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month and team captain Catherine Hassert's mom, Carol Hassert.
Avon's Breast Cancer Crusade supports awareness and education, screening and diagnosis, access to care, support services, and scientific research.breast cancer research.
The Maroon & White -- now 6-9-1 -- stays at home to next take on Montclair-Kimberley Academy Tuesday, Oct. 25. Game time is set for 4 p.m. on the Upper Turf Field.
