- Winning her Second State Championship
“This year was very sweet. My defense was spectacular. They were a brick wall. Even when I went through my two game drought, they were there for me, encouraging me. Being a goalie is a mental game, mind over matter, knowing that you can do it…when is gets to those ‘must win’ saves, it is great to know that you can count on your defenders to pick up that next side, get that shooting space call in order to put the shooter on the 8 meter, or to get open on the clear. My teammates really stepped up in our seven games against nationally ranked opponents. I love playing with these girls. The only regret for my season…I needed one more save against Walton. I will get them next year.”
- Getting her first State Championship ring
“I was only the back up Varsity Goalie last year. However due to an injury to our senior starter, I played in all of the playoff games leading to the Championship. I even played three very memorable minutes in the State Championship game. (Her play was noted by US Lacrosse Magazine) This season is very special. I have played with many of girls since we were very small. It was great to be able to contribute to such a great championship team.”
- Winning the City Championship in Middle School
“I loved our undefeated season! Who wouldn’t have? This is a great team who played their hearts out all year. I am glad to have been able to save those last four shots; so that my teammates could win this game by one. It was a perfect end to a perfect season.”
- Being named to the History Fellowship as a Freshman
