Following a very successful 2013 season as league divisional champions, AHA Lacrosse was moved into a higher, more competitive division this spring. This allowed our Angels the opportunity to prove that they could compete with some of the highest level opponents in our area. With ambitious goals set each year, we hope to continue to enhance the program by attracting more athletes and by continuing the development of every player both on and off the field. The foundation of our lacrosse team sits on strong building blocks and we are more excited than ever for the potential we have for achievement.
Year in Review
The 2016 Holy Angels Lacrosse team finished the season with a program best 16-3 record (5-0 in division) and was crowned American North Division Champions. The season was marked by quality regular season wins against Paramus, Ramsey, and Pascack Hills, and two tough one goal losses to Glen Rock and Indian Hills. The program also won its first ever state game when they defeated Voorhees. Returning next year, will be players responsible for all but 14 of our 240 goals scored this year, including junior award winners Melanie Welch (Midfield, 69 goals, 1st Team All-League, 2nd Team All-County), Devin Toolen (Attack, 78 goals, 1st Team All-League, 2nd Team All-County), and Maggie Kiess (Goalie, Honorable Mention All-League). In addition, sophomores Iris Knowles (Midfield, 2nd Team All-League), Teagan Cunningham (Defense, 2nd Team All-League), and Isabelle Shea (Attack, 20 goals, 44 assists, 1st Team All-League), along with freshman Catie Bagin (1st Team All-League, 2nd Team All-County) will lead a young and talented group.
