Recruit Profile
Gritty, coachable, and a team player with strong Lax IQ - disciplined and determined scholar athlete.

I began playing lacrosse at age 10 for my local recreational team (Springfield Youth Club). I was a starter on the A-team from 5th to 8th grade and I helped coach the younger teams throughout middle school. I joined my first club team, Pride Lacrosse, in 7th grade and saw my skills improve instantly. In only my first year with Pride, I vastly improved my stick work, strengthened my lacrosse IQ, and gained confidence as a player. I then made my varsity high school team my freshman year and was a starter for the first and only game of the season since it was unfortunately cut short by the pandemic. My sophomore year I was honored to be named varsity captain. I had an amazing regular season, where I played mainly midfield, leading the team in assists, ground balls, caused turnovers and was the 3rd leading scorer. At the end of the regular season, I was a unanimous first team All-District selection (National District - Northern VA area). I am not only a determined athlete but also a committed student. I have a 4.15 GPA and have taken all honors classes throughout middle school, freshman, and sophomore year. I am now on a full International Baccalaureate track.

Samantha Shterengarts

Nov 4, 2021

Ava is the head captain of her team. She was a varsity starter as a freshman. She is the smartest attacker on the team with a very high lacrosse IQ. She is very adept at seeing the entire field. On attack, she leads the team in assists and is second in goals. On defense she plays well in both man and zone defenses. Has great speed, excellent endurance and is a very tough player. Ava is not afraid of anyone or any situation. In 2020 we were playing a state-contending team in the regional tournament. Our team was having trouble scoring against them and Ava was able to take 5 defenders to goal, two separate times, to get her team on the board. Ava is a VERY strong attacker with excellent power. She has proven herself unstoppable around the crease. Her proficiency with her right and left hand, ability to dodge defenders and find an open teammate, and her tenacious re-defending make her a force on the field. She is also an excellent leader, strong and respected captain, and overall star on the field. She is coachable and in 14 years, she has been the most influential player I've coached.
