“I play varsity lacrosse here at Eureka. I started playing the sport in sixth grade, and then I played club in eighth grade. I wanted to play lacrosse because all of my friends started playing it back in middle school. I didn’t even know lacrosse existed, to be honest until they told me. I was doing gymnastics at the time, and I kind of was starting to like lacrosse more - I liked playing as a team more than competing by myself. With lacrosse, I have other people to rely on and it’s never all about me. I still really like lacrosse; my favorite part is probably towards the end of the season whenever it’s Senior Night or the last game where everyone is super excited. Sports are important to a students’ well-being because it really helps with your mental health to be active and to be a part of a team. If I wasn’t involved in lacrosse, I would for sure find another sport for me. I hope to get a scholarship for college in the future; even if I don’t, I will continue to play somehow. I want to continue with it because it’s a good way to make friends and keep yourself on track, since my grades affect my team and not only me. My advice to people scared to try a sport would be just do it. Even if you don’t have the skill set, the coaches can teach you good skills and you can practice that. But, if you don’t give effort, you won’t make it.”
