From the Sideline

“Lexie committed herself this summer to coming to workouts and putting in hard work this season. We had three goalkeepers unavailable last week and Lexie stepped in, having never played a varsity or JV game at goalkeeper, and stunned Todd Beamer with a shutout win. In the 1-0 win, Lexie stopped all five shots on goal.” – coach Joey West
