Coach's Description

We believe in empowering our student-athletes to love themselves, honor one another, and create unity in everything they do. This begins by recruiting passionate people for Palm Beach Atlantic. We desire high-character young women of faith that are excited to find their purpose both on and off the field. Our mission is to encourage the gifts that lay inside of them by our Creator. This is the Creator’s Game, after all. Please visit www.pbasailfish.com/wlaxrecruits to learn more about playing lacrosse at Palm Beach Atlantic University. –– Imagine this–– it's June 22, 2030. Your wedding day. As you prepare to embark on the biggest adventure of your lives, who will be standing with you? Your college teammates. The decision to play at any university goes far beyond academics and athletics. You are choosing forever friends; the people who will stand with you at the altar, in life's toughest moments, and everywhere in between. Wedding ring on one hand, championship ring on the other. The way it should be. –– Investing in You: As coaches, we believe in pushing you as a player and person. On-field results are great, but who you become in your professional career is that much more important. Making sure you're equipped to be the best wife and mother one day is something that does not happen by accident. –– Our Sailfish Brand of Lacrosse: Between the lines, we play fast. We push transition. We play aggressive defense. We have one of the highest-efficiency offenses in the country. You'll love playing in our system because fast is fun and lacrosse should always be fun.
