Sacred Heart Greenwich’s Varsity A lacrosse team had a lot to cheer about in its home finale against Hotchkiss School this past Saturday.

The Tigers continued their dominant season by defeating another opponent in impressive fashion before their home crowd, topping Taft School, 19-6, in NEPSAC lacrosse action.

“It was a great team win and we received a strong defensive effort against an excellent Taft offense,” Sacred Heart co-head coach Shannon Robinson said.

Senior co-captain/attack Kelly Haggerty recorded four goals and two assists, while junior midfielder Kaitlin Robinson registered four goals to power the Tigers’ offense.

Sacred Heart entered halftime with a 12-5 lead, then limited Taft to one second-half goal to add onto its advantage. Junior midfielder Maggie Bacigalupo had a hat trick with one assist and Payton Sfreddo, also a junior midfielder, scored three goals to also propel the Tigers.
