Junior Nicole Genga continues to play great lacrosse for the girls varsity lacrosse team this year. This is Genga’s third year starting on the team and she is a force to be reckoned with. So far this season Genga has scored 33 goals, which is a new record for her while playing for the Wyverns.
Genga is a very experienced player with eight years of playing under her belt. In addition to playing for the KO team, she also plays for a club team outside of school. “What I love about the KO team is the bond I have with all of my teammates and coaches,” said Genga. “We have the ability to have a productive practice but have fun at the same time.”
On Monday, May 7, Genga had a strong performance against Miss Porter’s School, scoring one goal and dishing out two assists. On Wednesday, May 9, Genga added five goals to her season total against Westover School to win with a score of 22-1.
Genga’s school coaches are very impressed with her skills and active role on the team.“Nicole is having a really good year as the second leading scorer,” said Head Coach Timothy Allerton. “Her club team has helped her improve her play, and she has gotten to the point where she will be leading the KO team next year.”
With all of Genga’s successes, she still has a lot more KO lacrosse ahead of her. Genga is excited for next year. “I am excited to step up and teach some of the newer players how our offense and defense work,” she said. “I am especially excited to do this alongside fellow juniors Mia Seymour, Jane Dunbar, and Jackie Dugan, and to work closely with our two coaches to have the most successful season possible.”
