At one time in my life, I lived for lacrosse. It was what I looked forward to EACH and every single day. Lacrosse season was honestly THE most wonderful time of the year (Christmas was always in second). I loved the game, and I loved the competition. The team became an extension of my family. The field was where I could escape. It was the place where I could just leave the stresses of studying for that ONE exam from hell. There were no boy issues. It was just the team, the coach, the game, and I. Nothing else.
I knew that one day, my days of playing would come to an end. But I knew that lacrosse would forever be a part of my life.
I am now an assistant coach at Shenandoah University. I just finished my first season with the team, and I couldn’t be happier with how it went. I get to share my passion for the game with some very talented young women. Sure, there is a lot of commuting between home and practice, and an incredible amount of time on the bus. But in my eyes, it is all completely worth it.
I’m already looking forward to Fall Ball and the spring season, especially since we’re in a new conference with tougher competition and new rivals. The ODAC won’t know what hit them.
