MG

One of our 2017’s, McKenzie Gallasso, is starting strong at New England College!   McKenzie is one of our former goalies at LXC, from South Windsor, CT. McKenzie is a Kinesiology major at NEC, and tearing up the lacrosse field as a Freshman! We are so impressed by the season she is having this year that we wanted to update our LXC players and families on how things are going!

Last week the NEC Pilgrims went 3-0, adding to a 6-game winning streak. The Pilgrims are now 7-2 on the season, and McKenzie had her first collegiate shut out with 10 saves in a conference game!!  If that wasn’t enough, McKenzie went on to have 15 saves in a 18-17 overtime win against Gordon College, a team they haven’t beaten since 2010. With her all star performance, McKenzie earned defensive player and rookie of the week for the NAC Conference weekly honors!!!!!

We are so proud of our LXC players representing Laxachusetts at the college level!  Keep up the good work, McKenzie! We will be following you at New England college!
