NORTH READING — The Cape Ann League girls’ lacrosse coaches met recently to select their All-Star teams. Three North Reading players made the CAL Second-Team All-Stars.

The three Hornets to make the roster were Lindsey Rosenthal, Alaina Driscoll and Addison Hajj.

For Rosenthal, a junior midfielder, it was her second year in a row on the second-team All-Stars. She had 14 goals and three assists in 17 games played. She also caused 30 turnovers.

“She is our best defender and she has a very high lacrosse IQ,” stated Hornets head coach Matt Costello. “With her on the field, it is like having an extra coach.”



Driscoll, a sophomore attacker, had a team-high 46 goals to go with seven assists. She also had a team-high 65 draw controls.

“She exploded for us this season,” said Costello. “She is a very good athlete and the sky is the limit with her being only a sophomore.”

Hajj, who like Driscoll, made her first league All-Star team, had 26 points this spring with 24 goals and two assists. She also had 17 draw controls.

“In the draw controls, she often placed it on the circle so Alaina could get it,” explained Costello. “So Alaina got the credit for the control but it was Addie setting her up. Addie has a lot of potential,” said Costello, as the midfielder is also just a sophomore.



The Hornets reached the MIAA Division 4 State Tournament again this spring as they fell at Lynnfield, 16-12, in the opening round on June 2.

Overall, North Reading finished at 6-14. In the CAL, the Hornets went 3-10 as they finished tied for third place with Essex Tech in the CAL Baker Division.
