|From 2000 until 5/24/10 Moorestown won 228 straight games versus N.J. teams.
The Quakers won ten (X) straight Tournament of Champions titles from 2000-2009 and 17 overall since the tournament started in 1976.
Moorestown has played in 13 straight NJ State TOC title games, a feat never accomplished in any sport. **The TOC winner is the true state champion regardless of school size. Recently, the NJSIAA has crowned four Group Champions who play for the TOC crown. Prior to this, the state crowned North and South A and B Champions, large and small schools respectively who played down to one final champion. Preceeding 2003, the NJ State Champion won every game regardless of school size and seedings were done purely by record. All have been acknowleded as the TOC Champion.
From 2000 to present, Moorestown is 324-14.
Coach Knobloch's record in her 21st year stands at 450-29-4. She now has the most coaching victories in NJ history.
Congrats to the following girls on their lacrosse commitments to their respective colleges. As of 6/30/12.
