Moorestown is the winningest lacrosse program in the nation over the last 19 years. The girls have won 93% of their games. There are over 3,000 high school sanctioned girls teams playing lacrosse in the US, having just passed field hockey in total numbers.

From 1999 to 2015, the girls program has finished # 12, # 5, # 1, # 1, # 3, # 2, # 3, # 2, # 4, # 5, # 7, # 5, # 10, # 2, # 2, # 2 and # 18 nationally in consecutive seasons, including three straight years (2012, '13, '14) being recognized as the nation's # 1 Public School.
By the numbers
From 2000 until 5/24/10 Moorestown won 228 straight games versus N.J. teams.

The Quakers won ten (X) straight Tournament of Champions titles from 2000-2009 and 20 overall since the tournament started in 1976.

Moorestown played in 12 straight NJ State TOC title games, a feat never accomplished in any sport. **The TOC winner is the true state champion regardless of school size. Recently, the NJSIAA has crowned four Group Champions who play for the TOC crown. Prior to this, the state crowned North and South A and B Champions, large and small schools respectively who played down to one final champion. Preceeding 2006, the NJ State Champion won every game regardless of school size and seedings were done purely by record. All have been acknowleded as the TOC Champion.

From 2000 to present, Moorestown is 427-29.
Coach Knobloch's record in her 27th year stands at 557-44-4, the most coaching victories in NJ history.
