School: Newport Harbor High School
The National Team is also welcoming Katie for the first time this year. She has been playing lacrosse for five years and has played for Wedge, Victory, Team OC, and Pacific Falcons club teams along with being a second year varsity player at Newport Harbor High School.
Why are you most excited about being able to play for the National Team? “I am excited to be a part of this amazing experience. I am also really looking forward to becoming friends with all of the girls on the team and playing at a high level of lacrosse and just having an awesome time while doing something that I love.”
What is your favorite lacrosse memory? “I went to Western Cup in Florida and stayed with my coach and teammates and I just had an awesome time!”
If you could describe yourself in four “hashtags” what would they be? “#spunky #neonheadband #iownyou #youngmoney”
If you were told you had to live the rest of your life as an animal what animal would you be and why? “A bird because it would just be fun to be able to fly around and have fun.”
“Katie is one of the most dedicated, hardest working players in our program. She constantly works on her game and seeks out any opportunity to play and develop. Her strongest attributes are her poise with the ball, her instincts (knowing when to shoot and when to pull out of pressure), and her confidence on the field. She is always positive and she has taken an active leadership role on the varsity team–even as a freshman and sophomore.” – Newport Harbor Coach, Matt Armstrong
