How has your transition been from varsity basketball?

What do you love about lacrosse?

What has been the key to the team's success this year?
"There is no drama which I appreciate and we are all one team. We all sit in a circle before the game and energy on and off the field is a lot of fun. We have each other's backs and that is our saying. It is true."
What do you enjoy about playing the sport?
"Lacrosse was easier for me because I came from basketball. It (basketball) does not include a stick but it is all about foot work and that helps with lacrosse. I understand angles from basketball and how to use physicality. It has helped me and make me better."
What is a perfect last month of school for you?
"I am hoping to have fun and treasuring each moment. I enjoy every moment with the lacrosse team. I am so happy I played and I get to spend me senior year with them."
