Recruit Profile
Left-handed aggressive, coachable, seasoned attacker. Threat to goal from both sides of the field, and comfortable shooting from close or far away. Two sport athlete, coach and referee.

I have been playing lacrosse since the third grade. My dominant hand is my left hand, so I have acquired the ability to use and manipulate both sides of the field. Because I can drive right and left, I am a threat to the goal anywhere on the field. Additionally, I use my height and strength to attack any loose ball on the ground, or even in the air. I started varsity my freshman year playing low attack and taking the draw. For my high school, I broke the record as most goals for a freshman ever (36 goals) and was also the second top scorer overall. Also, my freshman year, I was named all conference honorable mention.I contributed to my teams successes by being the only player who was able to confidently dodge, feed and attack the goal from the left side. In my free time, I coach and referee youth girls lacrosse. This strengthens me as a player because I am able to view the field from three different perspectives as opposed to one.
I am also a two sport athlete. During the winter, I participate on the basketball team at my high school. The quickness and aggressiveness I have attained from basketball I feel benefits me strongly as a low attacker. With respect to lacrosse, in my 2019-2020 winter league team for school, I was ranked in the top ten for goals, assists and points per game out of 450 girls in my county.
In terms of academics, I am in three honors classes, and am on track to take multiple AP classes my junior and senior year. I am currently in two math classes, in hopes of excelling in the SATs. My current priorities are becoming even stronger and faster so I can hustle every minute I am on the field.
