Shooting Star Recap
Shooting Stars was a success as many colleges attended the Mystix games. The college recruiting process for our Seniors and Juniors are in it’s beginning stages! Congratulations to the Mystix players for a great weekend of successful games.
The Mystix team consisted of East Coast players, San Diego Flyers and the Mystix players. One of our standouts was senior captain Marisa Mitchell. A standout in all the games with the ability to play in any position I needed her; solid drives and movement of the ball with speed! Our juniors from the East coast; Caroline Cairns, Abby Biddle, Olivia Jaffe and Caitlin Keim all proved to be driving forces on our team. They fit with our team in game theory and all around team fun and camaraderie. Katherine Tran, was a solid player at defense and worked well with our two east coast defenders. We missed Juniors Lily LaGoy and Mayla Romano due to injury and illness but see a bright future on next years Mystix team.
Our two junior goalies Rachel Leslie and Mary Lynn Tracy had a very successful tournament with many great saves and a highly complimented night from the director of the goalie wars; “I can’t wait to see where these two land up playing in college.” Our sophomores and freshman all stepped up to the plate and played at the U19 level. They all could have been stars in the U16 level but played with us on the U19 Mystix team…Jessica Ronces, Hailey Brigger, Makenzie Kensel, Juliana Ishimine, Cassie Le, Ciara Weissman and Char Walker.
All of them had speed, super endurance and ability to work with their older teammates. The success of our team was due to it’s willingness to play as a team and it’s ability to create quick bonds and respect between all players. It was also nice to have returning Mystix players, Ari Hooper and Cat Villa help coach at the tournament. Their advanced knowledge from college play and coaching style was helpful to head coach, Cindi Lou-Villa.
