Looking Back at the Experience of a Lifetime



What an incredible experience the past twenty days has been. It seems like just yesterday we arrived in Baltimore for the alumnae game, and now we sit together as World Champions!

For some of us, these games were our final lacrosse adventure, and for others, just the beginning of what we hope is an incredible USA Lacrosse experience. Either way, our 2013 World Cup Team was one of the most fun, memorable, and passionate groups of young women that has ever played together.

When the final whistle blew at the end of the Gold Medal game, we had dominated, but more than that, we had accomplished our goal of playing some of the best lacrosse ever played. We embraced the process of coming together as a team and supporting and pushing one another to be our best. Now we get to celebrate our success as one!

It's challenging to sum up an experience of a lifetime...this team and our journey together will stay in our hearts forever. Above all else, we can say thank you... to our teammates, coaches, families, friends and fans who have made this what it is: a dream come true. Until next time.... 

Stars & Stripes Forever,
Sarah and Holly
