(May 6, 2022) — In a week of back-to-back losses, the HKHS Girls Lacrosse team brought GOLD to their Higganum field. Despite the setback of the varsity team losing to the Shoreline Conference’s first-place Valley team with a final score of 19 – 6, and a tight second loss to North Branford with a final score of 13 – 11, these girls were pure GOLD. On Thursday, May 5, 2022, with a scheduled fundraiser in support of an HKHS family, these girls made HK glitter like GOLD, successfully raising awareness of children’s cancer and collecting funds in support of the Webster family. Family and friends, as well as supporters of the opposing team all came together, eagerly donating to this important cause. The game was left on the field, but the hearts of both teams and of all the attendees at Thursday’s game were united in color and cause.
Thank you all for your support, and thank you to North Branford for joining us in solidarity.
Way to come together, Lady Cougars. Keep doing good, on and off the field!
