Hard workers, good listeners, smart players

The Summit’s girls’ lacrosse program may have started with humble beginnings, but since the team advanced to the state finals in 2007, the program has been growing.

Hard workers, good listeners and smart players have fueled the program’s dogged approach. When it comes to scheduling, the philosophy is to create a rigorous lineup that includes Division I opponents.

In 2015 and 2016, the Silver Knights advanced to the Division II state semifinals after winning regional titles and MVC championships. Summit has won the MVC from 2015-2019. In 2019, the Silver Knights reached the regional final.

The Summit girls’ lacrosse program is co-coached by Michaela Connolly and Scott Hill.

Coach Connolly joined The Silver Knights for her first season as head coach in 2022. With 17 years of playing experience and 2 years of coaching club lacrosse, Coach Connolly brings an exciting energy to The Summit program.

As a coach, she believes in building strong character and helping each player reach their full potential: "My goal at Summit is to teach discipline, to work together as a team, and to develop the fundamentals of each player."

Coach Scott Hill brings experience as a hockey player and coach to Summit. His coaching philosophy emphasizes hard work, teamwork and playing the game the right way: "Both hockey and lacrosse are fast paced and exciting, but the best players have subtle, nuanced skills that make all the difference."
