Coach’s Outlook for 2017: “GFS is looking forward to a solid defensive unit this season anchored by 3-year starter, Corin Grady, in goal. Additionally at defense, we have the “Golden Girls” sisters, Lindsey and Marlie Golden as well as a soccer-turned-lacrosse standout, junior, Riley Knowles. Celia Meyer (Colgate), our 2016 leading scorer and undoubtable threat, will work in tandem with 4-year starter Sophie Smith at midfield. On attack, GFS has a lot of up-and-coming talent that will be lead by senior, Livi Pinover, meshing with sophomores Natalie Harrity and Jane MacRae. GFS has 7 super freshman that will make an impact on each part of the squad- this young new talent is already pushing themselves into the starting lineup. Each athlete has improved since last season, gained confidence, speed and skills and the Tigers are looking to compete for the FSL title!”
