CEDAR GROVE, NJ – Members of the Cedar Grove High School boys and girls Lacrosse teams presented the Board of Education with gifts at the June 30 board meeting to commemorate the inaugural season of lacrosse at CGHS. 

Players presented Board President Joseph Cicala and Superintendent Michael Fetherman with two framed photos, one of the boys’ team and one of the girls’ team with all of the player signatures on the matting. 

Joe DeBari, captain of the boys team, spoke to the board about how grateful the players and parents were to have lacrosse offered at CGHS.

“For some of us lacrosse is a sport we love and have played for a number years and dreamed of playing in high school.  For others like myself, who have never played before, it was a chance and an opportunity to learn.”  DeBari said.  “For 44 of us, representing our high school in its very first season was exciting and the enthusiasm and support from the community was motivating. We hope you are as proud of us as we are of this first season.”

CGHS introduced lacrosse for the first time this spring with the intention of starting a club team.  The overwhelming response led to lacrosse being established as a Junior Varsity sport in its very first year, with 14 boys and 30 girls taking the field for Cedar Grove.

Cicala congratulated the players on a successful first season.  “Thank you very much and we’re very glad that you had such a great season,” Cicala said.  “We are looking forward to lacrosse really continuing to grow.”
