Scoring 70 regular-season goals is a great achievement for an individual, one that usually is good enough to lead the state. Eighty-goal seasons are remarkable accomplishments and exceedingly rare. Ninety or more is unicorn territory. One-hundred plus is so unthinkable it’s all but laughable.
It’s important to note that none of the above applies to Hutchinson’s Maddy Seifert, whose scoring wizardry smashes all traditional benchmarks. As a sophomore in 2019, Seifert became what is believed to be the first girls' lacrosse player in state history to reach the 100-goal plateau when she recorded 110 goals in 15 games. She has 89 goals in 12 games to lead the state this season, giving her an astounding 320 for her career.
Seifert’s scoring helped Hutchinson (11-1, 6-0) win its first 11 games this spring before losing 19-8 to Wayzata on Saturday.
