"She scored early. Off of two corners. Then my
coaches and I noticed, she had a pulled quad
since New Egypt, so we took her out."
The Two goals she scored were beautiful. Rockets
from the top of the circle."
I never would have imagined, if you told me four
years ago. If you told me I wouldve said youre
crazy. The goal was to play her at center midfield.
But as a freshman we had one. So I made Lexi my
forward and from that point on she really put the
ball in the net.
The idea where I got to put her at forward was her
club team. If shes playing club with some of the
best in the country, she could do this.
Lexis the type of player-she will do whatever her
team needs her to do. If her team needs scoring,
she will. If the team needs her to play back, she will.
Playing club field hockey all these years has really
taught her how to score.
My husband built her her own cage from scratch.
He'll work with her. Its an amazing feeling.
Before she entered high school, I asked her if she
wanted me to coach her. She said no, I want you to
Our rule is no field hockey talk when we go home.
Its been a great ride. Its been such a great ride.
To be honest, the only thing my husband and I want
for her is to be happy.
All her hard work has gotten her where she needs to be.
When she was a little girl, I used to put in University
of Maryland's Meharg. tape's, offensive and defensive
tactical tapes, and she used to go to bed to that stuff.
Just being around the sport, she plays seven days a week,
I always tell her, if youre out there working, and theyre
sleeping, youll get ahead of them. And I can honestly
tell you she does that athletically as well.
She has been blessed with great teammates, kids that
Were very, very proud of her, athlically as well as
Im pretty excited. I wish I got to finish today
and break it.
Hopefully next game Ill be able to break it.
Just like any other pulled muscle, it takes rest, and
I havent been getting it.
Played the majority of the first half.
I dont think it can get much better than what I have
achieved and hopefully what my team will achieve.
Its probably going to be one of the best moments that
ive ever gotten to experience. Hopefully when I break
it it will be.
Really havent had a good weekend off since the summertime.
Hopefully Tuesday Ill break it and well go out for pizza
with my team
Tuesday at 3:45 at Florence.
TCNJ in April.
My aunts record was a family thing, so it was a little
closer to my heart. This is something that is nation-wide,
so its impossible to compare it to anything.
All the credit shouldnt just go to me. All the girls I work
with work as hard or harder than me.
