The Harborfields Central School District recognizes Harborfields physical education teachers and sisters Kathleen Taylor and Christine Collins for being honored by their individual colleges for their exceptional athletic performances in the women’s lacrosse programs.

On April 12, Washington Drive Primary School physical education teacher Taylor was among eight Hofstra alumni who were inducted into the Hofstra University Athletic Hall of Fame. Taylor was a member of the women’s lacrosse program from 1998-01 and is one of seven Pride players to earn the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association All-America honor. Among other athletic recognitions, Taylor ranks in the history of Hofstra women’s lacrosse second all-time in assists, sixth in goals and fourth in points.

For the first time in the history of women’s lacrosse at the University of North Carolina, Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School physical education teacher Collins is one of two players to have their jerseys honored by the Tar Heels women’s lacrosse team. While the jersey numbers will remain active, Collins’s jersey will be displayed in the team’s locker room. During halftime of a Tar Heels game against Syracuse in Fetzer Field on April 11, Collins along with former teammate Kellie Thompson, were honored.
