The Sports Report
Corning senior Jenna DiNardo post numbers on the lacrosse field in 2023 that are nearly beyond comprehension. She is The Sports Reports' 2023 All-Region Girls “Athlete of the Spring.”

DiNardo had an offensive season like none ever before in the area, scoring 98 goals and registering 44 assists. Her 142 points led the Lady Hawks to a Section IV title.

More impressive, DiNardo, who will be attending the University of Virginia in the fall, did it in just 17 games.
DiNardo topped 200 career goals and 300 career points this year.

(The Sports Reports covers 24 school districts in four counties, and Corning.)
