SARAH KUBA: Love, loyalty and lacrosse

"I honestly sorta stumbled into the sport; my friend mentioned it to me and I thought I might as well give it a shot. I would have never pictured myself as a lacrosse player, but I was a very active athlete in middle school. It started out as just for fun, but I began to really fall in love with the game. My school didn't want to support a lacrosse team, so at that point, it was really up to my teammates and me to form our own club team. The lack of support we received from our school though was really just another incentive for me to keep playing; I became passionate about not only the sport but also about the loyalty I shared with the group of girls around me."

(Sarah Kuba, Palm Harbor High junior)
