Freshmen Stuart Humphrey and Kirste Garguilo are already planning to be back next year, improving on this season.
Summit girls hockey head coach Matt Stanbro has a long term plan for the future of the program. "Realistically, I use the other teams as measuring sticks of who we should be able to compete with this year, next year and three years down the road," Stanbro said. "I try to think in a four year cycle with the players and who we have. For instance this year we're able to compete with Pingry. At times we are able to play very competitive games against Princeton Day School and Princeton High School. Those are teams I want to stay very close to next year and hopefully even get a few wins." "Just trying to move up, look at who's the next best team, and who's after that," Stanbro said. "That's what we've been doing and that's what we'll continue…

Girls record first win in last game of the season.
BRIDGEWATER–From the moment the Hilltoppers took the ice, the air was positively electric. It was the last game of the season and all of the girls wanted one thing: a win. They had one more chance against Pingry on Tuesday evening. The Hilltoppers scored the first goal in the first period and the crowd went wild. Parents, siblings and friends were thrilled to see the girls playing with so much heart. The puck went down to the other end of the ice where senior Tory Round made one of many fantastic saves. Round, who played her last high school game tonight, seemed determined to show Pingry just whose territory it was. The period ended tied 1-1. "The first goal felt exciting," said freshman Jen Stabler, who scored two goals for the …

Hilltoppers fall 9-1.
BAYONNE, N.J.— Both goalies, Tori Round and Katherine Gargiulo, as well as senior captain Clare O'Malley were unable to make the game on Sunday, but freshman Grace Berkery, Jen Stabler and junior Caroline Hurkes stepped up and gave it their all in a tough loss to Princeton High School. Princeton drew first blood but Stabler answered back off an assist from Marion Sayre. The Hilltoppers held Princeton off for most of the first period, but PHS scored three goals within one minute and the first period ended Summit 1, Princeton 5. "Our positioning is better at times, but it's not consistent," said head coach Matt Stanbro. "I feel we get 100 percent effort most of the time. But we need it to be all the time."

Hilltoppers lose 12-0.
BAYONNE—Hill scored three goals within the first three minutes of play and didn't look back en route to a 12-0 rout of the Summit girls ice hockey team. The Hilltoppers responded well, but a much more powerful Hill team was simply too much for them. But Head coach Matt Stanbro sees the game as a sign of growth. "Coming off the ice, we got some compliments from the opposing coach and the referee that, even from what they've seen from a month ago and from playing us in the past, that our team is improving as a program," he said. Hill led an attack on senior goaltender Tory Round, scoring five goals by the end of the first period. The Hilltopppers were forced to quickly reinforce their defense, taking some pressure off Round. "I wanted two …
