Creating a path for others to follow is exactly what senior Jen Sabbak '17 is doing on the lacrosse team. Sabbak has just reached a major milestone, scoring 100 goals, a mark never before reached in Girls' Lacrosse at Passaic Valley.

“It’s crazy to have a record in this school and be the first one in our Girls' Lacrosse history to make it happen. To even be at the 100 goal benchmark is surreal. My team, coaches, and loving friends and family have played such a big part in my career and road to 100. I wouldn't have been able to do it without them.”  

Lacrosse coach Ms. Lori Demsey had this to say about Jen's achievement: “In order to reach the 100th goal milestone, a player would have to make Varsity in freshman year and score an average of 25 goals per season. She also would need good offensive teammates to feed her the ball. Jen's senior class teammates have helped her achieve her 100 goals. Not many players can say they got 100+ goals, and Jen was the 1st in our program.”  

A major team player, Jen isn’t known just for her scoring ability. She has natural leadership on the field. She encourages young players to strive to reach their goals everyday. To Jen's teammates and coaches, she is the definition of a team leader and a great person.

Jen will be attending Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pabut she plans to play field hockey in college and potentially giving lacrosse a shot too as a walk on. 

Jen has also been featured recently in a article to recognize her great achievements.
