Daler Lacrosse Alums Start Season Strong

Earn honors as captain, hit career goal record.

Farmingdale High School girls lacrosse alums are off to a strong start this season.

Johns Hopkins senior and Farmingdale native Candace Rossi scored the 100th goal of her career during the team's season opener. Rossie scored five total goals to help Hopkins top host George Mason 19-6 in the game.

Hopkins opened its season with a win for the fourth straight time. Rossi’s five-goal outing is the seventh of her career and she is tied for sixth in school Division I history with 105 goals.

University of Denver senior and Farmingdale native Melissa Maier was named one of four team captains for the 2012 season.

"They all bring different personalities to the role of captain, where they will both complement and push one another to reach their potential as team leaders," head coach Liza Kelly told DUClarion.com.

The captains were chosen in November through both a team vote and a discussion by the coaching staff. Maier is a midfielder for the Pioneers and has played in every game during her career at Denver and she recorded 16 points last season. She received the New York State Championship Sports Award her senior year at FHS and was the captain of the Daler lacrosse team.

"Melissa has moved around a lot over her career, but she plays with a lot of emotion," said Kelly. Maier is a marketing major with a minor in art.
