Recruit Profile
Two-way midfielder, great field vision, versatile, resilient, excellent team player, coachable, high Lax IQ.

I am a highly motivated student athlete. I started playing lacrosse in third grade and developed a passion for it. Since then, lacrosse has become an important part of my life. This is my 5th year playing with Southern Zone Lacrosse. At Northview High School, I made varsity as a freshman and started every game. As a sophomore, I served as the varsity team co-captain. I am a US Lacrosse certified official for U-15 since 2018 and officiate local lacrosse games. In the fall of 2019, I hosted a three-day lacrosse development clinic for middle school players where the proceeds were donated to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance to help Hurricane Dorian survivors. I also played junior varsity volleyball my freshman year and was one of two freshmen who made the team.

In the summer of my sophomore year, I was the youngest player representing South Korea in the U19 Womens Lacrosse World Cup with 17 goals, 5 assists, and 32 draw wins over 8 games. This is by far my biggest accomplishment and I felt so honored to even be able to experience such competition.

Navigating the game of lacrosse as an Asian player in the South has its challenges at times. However, I am so thankful for my love of lacrosse because it has provided opportunities to learn from great coaches, to meet friends and new people, and to represent my mother country, South Korea, at the international level.

I hope to pursue my dream of playing lacrosse at the collegiate level and becoming a valuable team member for a program that has a strong supportive team culture and a commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Grace is an awesome player! Great stick skills, decision making, and all around teamplay. Grace is a skilled draw specialist, and dynamic midfielder. Grace's ability to dodge, challenge the defense, and shot placement continues to improve each year!

Grace is a BEAST. Strong player with incredible stick skills. Very swift on her feet, fast and quick. Great height and speed. Excellent top dodger and can place her shot perfectly with pressure. She’s the player you want to have the ball in tight moments.

I have had the pleasure of coaching Grace as a first-year head coach at Northview High School. Grace has all of the tools necessary to make her an elite midfielder. Her stick skills are advanced and she can comfortably shoot, throw, and catch from both sides. She has excellent endurance and usually leads the pack in conditioning. She loves to attack the cage and remains a threat with off-ball movement. She takes pride in getting in the ride and putting pressure on the ball in settled defensive situations. Lastly, she leads by example and not just by words only. Most of her peers look up to her and are inspired by her competitive demeanor.
