Girls Lacrosse vs. DePaul – 13-6 Loss

Girls lacrosse got their season back underway after a five-day break with a loss against a once-defeated DePaul Catholic team. Nikki Giammanco and Sloane Irizarry both scored two goals, but it was not enough to defeat the Spartans. Hills dropped to 1-3 in the NJIGLL American Red Division.

Boys Lacrosse at Fair Lawn – 8-7 Loss

In a rematch of the matchup that decided who would be last year’s NJILL Cullen Division champions, the opposite result was true of the Bronco-Cutter rivalry.

Softball at Waldwick (Coaches vs. Cancer) – 11-3 Loss
