How did you get into Lacrosse?
I started lacrosse in year 7 at school. I was very lucky that it was taught in our PE lessons as it's not very common in schools in the U.K.
What is your most memorable moment from Lacrosse?
This is a really tricky question because there are memorable moments most matches but I really loved going on tour to Germany at the end of sixth form. We played three teams and were successful against all!
As a woman, what do you feel like you get from Lacrosse?
Fitness with a weapon!!! It's such a fun way to work exercise into your week with a competitive aspect. Also obviously you make so many friends! It's a very sociable sport and I found it really helped me ease into university in first year.
What would you say to a woman who was thinking about joining Lacrosse?
Lacrosse is a sport that comes to many later in life. The majority of our team started at university. It's a great opportunity to pick up something new in a friendly environment!
This week is "This Sussex Girl Can Week" where we are celebrating women in sports with a number of different events and activities on campus. To find out more, visit the Sussexsport website.
