We are proud of their academic and athletic accomplishments and equally proud of them as young men and women.

“They will no doubt continue to make us proud as they go on to play at the next level. I know I speak for everyone associated with the Moorestown Lacrosse Club – especially the many dedicated volunteers, coaches, parents and club officers – when I offer each of them a heartfelt congratulations on their successful high school careers and wish them all the very best in the future.”
