Lexi Smith, whose mother is head coach Gina Smith, enters her third season as a starter with 87 goals. The junior already has broken the school's career scoring record of 73, set by Melissa Bond in 1995.

Now Smith is going after the school's single-season scoring record of 46 set by assistant coach Dianne Carey-Stranko in 1992. Carey-Stranko is Lexi Smith's aunt and Gina Smith's sister.

Last season Smith scored 43 goals to place second in South Jersey to St. Joseph's Megan DeMarco, who topped everyone with 45.
