The events that unfolded over the last seven months preceding that announcement cast a black mark on the team’s ownership and the National Lacrosse League.

High School Girls Lacrosse:
Moorestown Wins Fourth Straight State Championship

Saturday, June 7, 2003

By Charlie Barker
SJSports Staff Writer

The Moorestown Lady Quakers added "four-pete" to their trophy case as they dominated West Essex to win the NJSIAA girls lacrosse state championship. They saved their best game for last in the 15-1 victory at Rutgers' Yurcak Field in Piscataway, and they did it in a pouring rain. Even more remarkable is that Moorestown's senior class finished their four years only experiencing one loss (a 6-5 loss on May 17 to St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School of Alexandria, VA).

Moorestown Moves One Step Closer to Another State Title
Outlast Shawnee For South Jersey Group A Championship

Friday, May 30, 2003

By Susan Hall
SJSports Special Correspondent

The crowd had lined the sidelines in anticipation of watching two excellent girl's lacrosse teams compete for the South Jersey Group A title. It had already been determined by most at the beginning of the season that the Lady Renegades from Shawnee would be meeting the Lady Quakers from Moorestown sometime during the post season. Both of these teams cruised past their opponents in the bracket to get to today’s competition. It would not be an easy game for either team as they only scored a total of eight goals during the first half. Moorestown would get two goals from Margie Curran and Megan Nutter to break a nine all tie to send the Lady Quakers on the field in celebration of their 11-9 win.

Richards Twins Lead Holy Cross Over Cherokee

Thursday, April 3, 2003

By Gary Steiner
SJSports Staff Writer

It's a good thing that lacrosse players must have numbers on their jerseys, otherwise you would not have been able to tell Whitney (#18) and Hillary (#9) Richards apart on the field. The two Holy Cross juniors showed a balance of scoring, assists, and defense in helping the Lady Lancers defeat Cherokee for the first time in their lacrosse history. Senior Kristin Zucconi led all scoring with 5 goals in the 13-8 win. But the 13-8 final score doesn't begin to show how intense was the offensive pressure of the Lady Lancers.

Cherokee and Vineland were two of those new teams from the newly formed American Division battling it out on the field. It will take some time before the boy’s portion of the sport will get some recognition, but it will continue to grow. Cherokee dominated the play against Vineland by posting a 14-2 win.

Wings Win 15-12 in Match-up of League's Two Hottest Teams

Saturday, March 15, 2003

By David W. Unkle
SJSports Staff Writer

It was gut check time for the Philadelphia Wings (7-5) as the National Lacrosse League’s top team, the Buffalo Bandits (9-2) came to town on the heels of a six-game winning streak. Philadelphia, playing their best lacrosse of the season and on their own four-game winning streak, was ready for the challenge. Buffalo uses their physical style of play to set up their offensive game; witness the Bandits atop the NLL rankings in penalties/minutes per game (13.5/32:00) and goals per game (15.4). The Wings game plan was basic: grab the early lead, keep Buffalo’s physical presence from setting up an offensive outburst in the final quarters of the first and second half, and avoid power play and transition goals.
