Mesa Lacrosse is proud to announce Lauren Wray as its Girls’ Lacrosse Director. John Nostrant, one of Mesa’s founders, says “Mesa is lucky to have someone with Lauren’s work ethic, attention to detail, and credentials join the Mesa team.”
Coach Wray says she “is excited to join the club and take Mesa girls lacrosse to the next level.”
