The Hills Lacrosse 7th/8th Grade LISGYLL team opened their Spring 2014 season at home on Sunday March 23rd against a well-coached Bayville team. The Hills girls pulled out all the stops on both ends of the field and used all the available talent to put forth a 13 – 4 victory with ten different players scoring and assisting. Tough defense and solid net-minding allowed for the low goals-against in this game. Teamwork and assertive play started the season with a very sweet W.
