The Walpole girls lacrosse team is going into tournament with a  11-6-1 record. Undoubtedly, they have had a good season with many hard fought wins and losses against a schedule that is the tenth hardest in the league (according to However, according to Head Coach Mike Tosone, one of the players that has “really become a star”  is junior Seana Cofsky.

Cofsky has been  an outstanding midfielder throughout the year with multiple goals in every game and an outstanding defender for the team, so it is to no one’s surprise that she has been chosen to be on the All-Star team along with fellow junior midfielder Michaela Tosone and senior defender Adrianna Fratassio.

For instance, on March 25, the Rebels lost to Newton North 16-12.  Coach Tosone described the game with the following: “It was the only real upset of the season for us. We are a good team but if we do not play our best these things can unfortunately happen.”  Cofsky, a key contributor to many of the Rebels’ victories, was held to only 2 goals during this game.

For their rematch on May 4 against Newton North, the result was totally different.  Powered by five goals from Cofsky, the Rebels took their revenge on Newton North by wining a close game, 16-13.   Similarly, against King Philip (another team that is ranked higher than Newton North), Cofsky scored five goals to help them clinch a victory. Also, in a rematch againsy King Philip on May 11, Cofsky stepped up with another five goals helping the team get the 14-10 win they needed to get into tournament.

On senior night, May 20, Walpole faced their rivals Norwood, a team that had much improved since the Rebels had played them in the beginning of the season. However, they were still no match for this Walpole team. With Cofsky emerging as a leader on both sides of the field and getting 2 goals, the Rebels beat the Mustangs 15-10 allowing more seniors who usually do not play to get valuable time during their last game on Turco Field.

Cofsky is not only becoming a leader offensively, but also a key defensive midfielder. The Rebels will head into the tournament relying on key players and superstars, such as Cofsky, as well. Last year, the Rebels made an early exit from the tournament when they lost to Westwood in the second round. Behind Cofsky, the Rebels will look to make a deep run into the postseason.
