Randolph Girls Lacrosse started their season with a three-game winning streak, including a big, season-opener win against Verona, 17-5, on Tuesday, April 2, 2024 at Bauer Field.

Randolph Girls Lacrosse won their first three games of the season, with a thrilling win against top-ranked Mendham,12-11, on Monday, April 8; a big win against Roxbury, 16-4, on Friday, April 5; and a season-opening win against Verona, 17-5, on Tuesday, April 2, at Bauer Field.

“We are really excited about the talent we have this season,” Head Coach Jillian Picciuto said. “Not only do we have a lot of returning players, but we have new additions that are going to elevate our team.”

Rampage covered the season-opener game, with its big win against Verona, 17-5, on Tuesday, April 2, over spring break.

At the opener, Randolph ended the first quarter with a winning score of 3-1, with senior captain Taylor Santoro earning the Rams their first goal of the game. Later in the quarter, senior captains Lexi Rodell and Riley Novak powered through their competition, getting two more goals.

By halftime, the Rams had left Verona scoreless in the second quarter, with senior captain and goalie Judy Mahoney holding a shut out all quarter, bringing the score to 9-1. Randolph executed well what the team had practiced pre-season, to bring them into this 7-0 scoring run.

“We have a lot of threats on our team this year, and it was great to see such a wide range of scorers from the game,” Novak said.

By the third quarter, the score added up to 11-5. The 2-point differential in the second and third quarter came from Rodell, who gave credit to everyone on the field leading to the win. “We have incredible talent on every aspect of the field,” she said, “and I think that really showed in the game, especially through our offense with how many different goal scorers we had.”

The Rams had a significant fourth quarter on all parts of the field with a final score of 17-5. The offense had a variety of people scoring goals with some making their first official varsity points. The defense impressively held Verona to zero points during this quarter. Rodell was the top scorer, earning the Rams 7 goals. Right behind her was Novak, securing 3 goals for the team.

Randolph had a fantastic start to the season and is looking forward to excelling even more as the season progresses. “As a team we definitely have concepts to improve on but for our first game we saw lots of potential for a fantastic season this year,” senior captain Katie Tighe said.

Their next game is today, April 10 @ Kent Place.
