My name is Sabrina Phillips and I have a strong passion for lacrosse. I grew up as a competitive gymnast and at the age of 11, I was at level 8 which was very good for my age. When I was 11, I broke my finger and sprained me back while doing a trick. After that I gained so many fears. So many that I could't continue the sport. Once a gymnast develops those mental fears, it's so hard to overcome them. I tried many sports from cheerleading to basketball but I didn't grow a passion for any of them but lacrosse. I started camps and clinics that included Five Star Lacrosse and Lightning Lacrosse in sixth grade. I improved enough in one year to be apart of the 2019 Garden State Elite team for seventh and eighth grade and I am playing on the team again this year. Since I had speed from being a gymnast, my GSE coach put me on midfield. Now, I take the draw and love the offensive side of lacrosse. I have also found an interest in playing defense. That is why I like to play midfield, so I can help out on the both the offensive and defensive end. As a freshman, I started on the Notre Dame junior varsity team. Currently, I am a varsity starter on defense. At the end of my freshman lacrosse season, we started to learn a zone defense. I found a great desire for that defense playing on the left wing. Thankfully, I gained enough skills through my summer club team to earn a starting spot this year at NDHS. Someday I hope I will get the opportunity to play college lacrosse and lead my team to victory.
