Los Alamitos girls lacrosse player Kennedi Cantrell recently announced on Twitter that she has committed to Colorado State Pueblo. “Happy to announce I am officially committed to play D2 lacrosse at Colorado State Pueblo! Go Thunderwolves,” Cantrell tweeted.
Cantrell, who has played lacrosse for four years, started playing when her best friend and teammate Molly Weinman got her interested in the sport. Weinman and former Los Alamitos standout Ane Horton helped push Cantrell, and never let Cantrell give up on what she loves.
“I wanted to commit to Pueblo because I knew it would be an amazing place where I could play lacrosse, mature a little and learn to depend on myself,” Cantrell said in a message. “I would love to thank my club coach Joe Brown. He really helped me get the kinks and bumps out of my playing.”

Los Alamitos girls lacrosse coach Sophia Aragon is excited about Cantrell’s commitment and is very confident that she has what it takes to flourish as a player at the collegiate level.
“She has grown tremendously, on and off the field, and has become a player we can depend on when the game gets tough,” Aragon said in an email.
Cantrell said that Aragon helped her see the whole picture when it came to lacrosse.Cantrell, a two year varsity player, thanked all the people who helped her get this far in her life, but most importantly, she thanked her parents.
“They support me no matter what and love me unconditionally,” Cantrell said.
Last season, the Thunderwolves went 8-8 overall, and 3-4 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
