LM: I enjoy playing field hockey and basketball at my school. I really enjoy volunteering at a community center in West Dallas. I also love spending time with friends, listening to music, and finding different coffee shops to try.
What’s it like being a high school lacrosse player ?
So much fun! I’ve gotten the opportunity to coach a few of the younger teams for my lacrosse club and it’s eye opening to see how much they look up to high school players. It really makes me realize that I’m never just playing for myself, but for the next generation of laxers watching.
Anybody you would like to Thank?
LM: I want to thank my parents first. They are my biggest supporters, and I can confidently say that I would not be where I am without them. Next are my club coaches, especially Lellie Swords and Christina Roa. They are very knowledgeable of the game and have prepared me well to play at a higher level. I also have to thank my goalie coach, Aaron Skiles. He has really helped me with fine-tuning my skills and pointing things out in my play that I haven’t noticed myself. Finally, I want to thank my supportive teammates who I can also call some of my best friends off the field. Whoever will get to be their teammates in college are some lucky people.
