Lacrosse Info:

I first picked up a stick when I was 6 because I wanted an excuse to hangout with my brother in the backyard. I officially began to play when I was 8, and have absolutely loved the game ever since. I am a vocal defender and pride myself on my footwork and 1v1 defense. I always force turnovers, averaging 2 CT per game in club. Furthermore, I accumulated 43 CT in HS my freshman year (game high 8 CT). I am comfortable with both hands and I do have the ability to run the ball on a clear or even score. I had 2 goals and 3 assists at HS my freshman year. I have been playing for my travel team, Belles, since 2014; in that time, my team and I have achieved the following:
