Genesee Community College women's lacrosse coach Jeff Reyngoudt will let no geographic boundary come between himself and improvement of his program. Reyngoudt traveled nearly the length of the state to add Juila Malkischer to his future roster.
The attacker currently competes for Arlington High School in LaGrangeville in Section I of the New York Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) in girls lacrosse that features some of the largest demographic teams from Dutchess, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester counties.
While the Arlington varsity girls lacrosse program has only been in existence for a little over a decade, it has recently come to prominence having recorded nearly 40 wins over the past four seasons that includes one Conference I-A title, as well as one Conference I-B title.
In addition, 30-plus alumni have moved on to the college ranks in lacrosse with Malkischer becoming the most recent by signing her letter of intent to attend GCC this week.
The Arlington girls lacrosse program started as an after school intramural club in 2006 and went varsity in the spring of 2007. In 2008 the varsity secured their first winning record and their first trip to sectionals. The team won their first league championship in 2014.
The program has made multiple trips to the sectional quarterfinals since 2012 including 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2015 the varsity won their second consecutive league championship.
In 2014, the Arlington girls lacrosse program won the Section I and NYSPHSAA Community Challenge Award for their commitment to Angelo Mastandrea and the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.
