Congratulations to the Strikers 2018's girls lacrosse team, coached by Fran Pochily, who are the Strikers Team of the Month for November/December!
Director of Girls Lacrosse, Kendall Adkin, when asked about the 2018's "Sometimes teams that are going into their senior year of high school do not continue to play for their club team in the fall of their senior year. The team may take the fall off and only focus on playing for their high school team in the spring, but our 2018 girls and parents just could not imagine not playing together for one last tournament so we made sure to accommodate for that! We sent them to the most magical place on earth one last time: President's Cup in Orlando, Florida. The girls had the opportunity to all play together one last time and in their spare time were able to spend time at Disney! They are an unbelievable group of girls on and off the field and never fail to make Coach Fran Pochily and I laugh constantly. These girls have been playing with each other for a number of years but were the most welcoming to me when I took over as Director. They have been a true joy to coach and build relationships with. We have multiple of them furthering their lacrosse careers in college as well as many of them going on to strong academic schools."
"The 2018 Strikers team has grown so much over the years. Not only have the girls developed into talented players, they have matured as people and formed a bond as teammates that they will carry with them into college next year." said Coach Fran Pochily.
