USA Lacrosse High School Girls' Players of the Week


Madison Alaimo had seven goals and four assists in a season-opening victory.

The USA Lacrosse Players of the Week recognize the most outstanding individual performances in high school girls’ lacrosse in each of the five regions — Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest and West — outlined in our high school coverage.


Madison Alaimo, Wantagh (N.Y.)

As the curtain raised on the Wantagh girls’ lacrosse team’s season Saturday, Madison Alaimo played the starring role in a 16-11 win over Middle Country (N.Y.). The Virginia-bound senior attack, a returning All-American, had seven goals and four assists in the season-opening victory.

A year ago, Alaimo had 62 goals and 43 assists, one of seven players in Nassau County to eclipse the 100-point plateau.

“Maddie is a tremendous force on and off the field,” first-year Wantagh head coach Lauren Ruppert said. “Her teammates look to her for guidance and motivation. She has been such a help during this transition to a new coaching staff. Her love for lacrosse shows through her hard work and dedication to any program she plays for.”

Also notable: Caitlin Barnes, Islip (N.Y.); Laurel Bonn, Huntington (N.Y.); Kelly Haggerty, Sacred Heart (Conn.); Payton Tini, Locust Valley (N.Y.)

— Dylan Butler


Quinn Murray, Georgetown Visitation (D.C.)

The sophomore midfielder had eight goals, a pair of assists, eight draw controls and four ground balls as the Cubs picked up wins over McDonogh (Md.) and Bishop Ireton (Va.). Murray had four goals in Visi’s 10-9 overtime win over McDonogh, their first win over the perennial power since at least 2009.

Also notable: Regan Byrne, Glenelg Country Day (Md.); Martha Oakey, St. Anne’s-Belfield (Va.); Anna Regan, St. Paul’s (Md.), Korrigan Sweeney, Owen J. Roberts (Pa.); Alexa Vogelman, Owen J. Roberts (Pa.)

— Justin Feil


Brooke Goldstein, American Heritage-Delray (Fla.)

Brooke Goldstein led American Heritage-Delray to a pair of victories last week. The junior attacker scored eight goals and added four assists in a 21-14 win over Lake Mary (Fla.). She then added four goals and three helpers in a 9-6 win over Stone Ridge (Md.). Goldstein is committed to Clemson.

Also notable: Abby Baker, Flower Mound (Texas); Ryann Frechette, Bartram Trail (Fla.); Maeve Simonds, Milton (Ga.)

— Justin Boggs


Tori Tomalia, Carmel (Ind.)

It's not always that you get a chance to avenge a state championship game loss right away. The Greyhounds got that opportunity with an early-season matchup against Guerin Catholic and capitalized. Senior Tori Tomalia was a major reason why as she tallied two goals and two assists for Carmel, after she scored five goals in her team's prior game (a win over Brebeuf). A UConn commit who tallied 53 goals, 28 assists and 85 draw controls last season, Tomalia will be a player to watch throughout the year.

Also notable: Ellie Beam, Kentucky Country Day (Ky.); Angie Conley, Hinsdale Central (Ill.); Eileen Dooley, Loyola Academy (Ill.); Breckin Hare, Carmel (Ind.); Ella Shemak, Mason (Ohio)

— Jonah Rosenblum


Tessa McCollester, Fairview (Colo.)

The sophomore scored six goals and added two assists to lead the Knights to a 14-11 win over former No. 4 Valor Christian (Colo.) on March 20. She has 15 goals and three assists through four games, after finishing her freshman season with 29 goals and 12 assists.

Also notable: Ari Foreman, Colorado Academy (Colo.); Leslie Iorio, San Ramon Valley (Calif.); Zoe Martin, Colorado Academy (Colo.); Megan McDevitt, Grant (Ore.)
