“Coach MG has been my coach for all 4 years of my high school lacrosse career and has made the program better each year,” said Rowland. “She has made a huge impact in our Haverford community within our athletics as she continues to dedicate her time for the three sports she coaches at our school (soccer, basketball, lacrosse).

“She is one of the most supportive and committed coach I’ve had and puts others first before herself. I am thankful to have MG as my head coach throughout my career and I know others would say the same!”
