My favorite sports event/memory/moment is ... returning to the lacrosse field against Hopewell Valley Regional High School my senior year after tearing my ACL the year prior against the same team. As a member of The Pennington School Boys Lacrosse team in my senior year, we defeated Hopewell for our first win against them of my high school career. I learned lacrosse through the Hopewell Valley youth Rec program and played against many friends and former teammates during my time at Pennington, so this game was part personal achievement, part redemption, and part friendly rivalry. Following the game, the Hopewell team joined our team for an end of season BBQ, and eating chili cheese dogs alongside opposing players who I had an enduring friendship with caps off this memory. This moment is why we play the game and respect the integrity of sport: opponents and friends are not mutually exclusive.
