WEST ORANGE, NJ – Senior Andrew DiPalma has broken the record for West Orange High School lacrosse goals originally set in 2010 and he’s not looking back.

The most recent record of 106 goals was set by Alex Berman in 2010. As of May 8, DiPalma has scored 108 goals and the season is not over. 

The fact that DiPalma scored his record-busting goal against Columbia on May 8 with a 14-13 victory made it all the more memorable, according to his coach.

“Our season has definitely started to turn around,” said head coach Pete Tourian. “We still have more work to do, but there is good reason to believe that we will finish at least near .500. After the opening to the season that we had, this is a tremendous achievement.”

DiPalma is also a member of the varsity soccer team. In September, he will be studying engineering and playing lacrosse at the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston.
