Ridgewood High School's girls lacrosse team won the school's first-ever women's state championship after defeating West Morris of Mendham 7-6. Abbey Van Horne summed up the team's feelings:
"We knew this was going to be our year," said an ecstatic VanHorne. "We've had so much fun playing together that we almost felt like it was our fate to win. When we we're out there playing together and having fun we almost feel unstoppable. I couldn't ask for a better group of teammates and to accomplish this with them is absolutely amazing."

There will be a celebration at RHS after school on Wednesday.
Way to go, girls!
