Here are some tidbits for you to consider in girls' lacrosse this week to start the spring season.

1. 300 and counting -- Winchester head coach Suzanne Ontso captured her 300th career win April 6 in a 17-5 triumph over Belmont. Ontso is in her 19th season at Winchester.

2. Tough loss for Needham -- Needham will be without senior Sarah Morse this season after tearing her ACL in a preseason scrimmage. The Rockets' two other seniors are Maddie Stenberg and Molly Strakosch.

3. New to the head coaching ranks -- Kathleen McCullough steps up from assistant coach to head coach at Medfield. Jason Heim, who coached the varsity team for five years, decided to coach the junior varsity team.

4. Another changeover -- After eight seasons, John McVeigh resigns as Andover's head coach and Liz Keady will take over. McVeigh led the Golden Warriors to eight Merrimack Valley Conference championships and a 158-30 record.

5. Record-breaking performance -- Winchester senior attacker and Harvard-commit Megan Hennessey has set two new school records already this season: she passed Lauren Sullivan for the points mark with 333, and her 117 assists pushes her ahead of Katie Brooks for the program’s all-time lead.
