My Story

my storyFor those of you who are interested in my story, I am writing this page in order to give you a little “behind the scenes” look at me!

I am a 16 year old typical teenager, who happened to fall in love with Lacrosse and have made it a big focus in my life. Now most of you might not even know what Lacrosse is but that’s ok because I didn’t know too much about it before I actually tried the sport a few years ago.

I was actually introduced to the sport a couple of summers ago when I decided I wanted to go to a summer camp devoted to Lacrosse. And I have to admit that I didn’t actually like the sport when I first tried it. I’m pretty sure I was more focused on that I didn’t really know anyone at the camp, so I convinced myself that I was not having a good time.

And to be honest, I don’t really remember why I even gave it a second chance but I sure am glad that I did. When Lacrosse season started in high school, I tried out for the team and made the Junior Varsity team. I truly fell in love with the sport and have played non-stop from the time I made JV until now.  I joined the Starz 395 team over the summer and made sure to improve my skills in the sport.

When the next season of Lacrosse (in my sophomore year) rolled around I was ready for try outs and ended up making the varsity team. We worked very hard and ended up with a record of 12-6. We made it to the CIF Post Season, which is almost never done by a second year varsity program. Our team was ranked 454th in the nation, which is 90 places above the previous year and ranked 60th in the state, which is 2 places above the previous year!

On a personal note, I was named “Player of the Game” in three games throughout our season! I was able to score 13 goals on the year and had a shot percentage of .542! Not too shabby! 🙂

I have already signed up for the Lacrosse 3D summer program and am looking forward to getting started in that! And if I can raise enough money, I’m going to try and attend at least once college summer Lacrosse camp. So make sure to keep ordering those cookies! 😀
