Isabelle Rohr never really had much of a choice.

“I always played with my brothers Sam, Ben and Peter and I never realized that there was girls lacrosse until my dad (Peter) got me into it,” the youngest Rohr said. “My brothers were always really rough with me, and I’m still a very aggressive player because of them.

When I switched over to girls sticks, I found that shooting with boys sticks helped me develop a powerful shot.”
