The Haudenosaunee U-19 Women’s Team brings home Nike Cup rings after playing 8-9 games from June 29- July 2 at Syracuse University.

Local players include Lynzee Miller, Ashley Hill, Dana Isaacs, Sam Miller, Jayden Bomberry and Trysten Miller with Leini Johnson bringing home the MVP honours.

The team was coached by Syracuse Women’s Coaches Regy Thorpe and Gary Gait, who work as the duo that has led the Syracuse Women’s Team to some of the best seasons in program history.

“A typical day at camp consists of a couple practices with games in between,” is written on the “What To Expect” section of the Star Riders Lacrosse Site. The tournament was created to provide high school athletes the opportunity to gain exposure and learn from some of the top coaches from across the nation. Keeping in mind that the recruiting situation for college scouts is difficult, the tournament offers exposure to experienced coaches and provides development for all skill levels.
