Lexi Smith called it one of the best moments of her life. Not the goal. Not the record-setting shot that Smith, a senior at Florence High School, sent rocketing into the cage early in Friday's field hockey game against Riverside. Smith, 17, has scored a lot of goals. She has scored more goals than any player in the history of high school field hockey in the United States. Smith's goal 8 minutes and 41 seconds into Friday's game was the 175th of her career. It broke the national record set in 1985 by Sharon Berney, a Philadelphia resident who was known as Sharon Landau when she played for Rye Neck High School in Mamaroneck, N.Y. Smith said she felt like "1,000 pounds were off my back" after the goal.

Lexi Smith has a dream. The Florence field hockey star sees herself playing for the Princeton University Tigers. However, there's one problem. Princeton has no medical school. "Princeton is the school of my dreams, and I'd love to be a cardiologist," said Smith, who has an Advanced Placement biology course tucked into her honors-course-laden curriculum this year. "I'd love to go into medicine, but I like education, too. "I'm not really sure. " At 15, Smith doesn't have to be sure about her future, which appears to be bright academically and athletically.

Lexi Smith is one of the sharpest shooters in South Jersey field hockey. A center-forward for Florence, Smith had slammed 30 goals through Monday, which at the time were just four behind the area's scoring leader, Kelsey Mitchell of Eastern. And she's only a freshman. "I end up putting goals in, but it's a team effort," Smith said. "Carey Million, Kristin Tully, Shara Muchowski, and the middies are responsible for my success. " Million, a freshman; Tully, a sophomore; and Muchowski, a junior, are her linemates.

Lexi Smith knew what she had to do: stop scoring. That's a peculiar thought for a pure scorer. But she had something more important to consider after she tied Florence's single-season scoring record Monday against Cinnaminson in a nonleague field hockey game. "I had the opportunity [to break the record], but my aunt wasn't prepared for it," Smith said after she scored four goals in a 6-0 win over the Pirates. "It's like a family tradition, something we can keep in the family.

Delran, which finished 9-10 last season in field hockey, has a unique motivation for the 2012 season. "Our homecoming lands right on the beginning of Group 2 playoffs," Bears coach Renee Bruno said. "If they have an away game, they're in big trouble because they miss all their homecoming events. " So far this season, Delran looks as if it could be set to celebration. The Bears are 4-2-1, with their only blemishes coming in one-goal defeats against unbeaten New Egypt and Pennsauken.
