Coping with Concussions

It is the middle of a lacrosse game in late April when the Stevenson girl I’m defending starts talking to me about her plans for after the game, her desires to study abroad, her opinion of the men’s lacrosse players heckling from across the stadium. Though conversations may happen on the field,...

As Much As You Put In

I have never put much weight in the occult. To me, graveyard walks are a pleasant way to spend an evening. Ouija boards are not the earpiece of the dead, but a tool to push my cousins’ buttons. And The Long Island Medium, one of my mother’s favorite shows, does little more than make me roll my eyes...

Empowering Girls and Women in Sports

In my mind, Arcadia’s dome always evokes memories of blistering cold days. Of practices and conditioning workouts before the sun rises. Of dragging sleds and running sprints (74 to be exact) until tears came to my eyes. Of harsh lights and dry air. Don’t get me wrong: The dome was built...

Surviving the Off-Season

It is 7 a.m. on a Thursday and I’m questioning my life choices big time. My heart is racing, a panicked metronome in my chest. My legs ache, still feeling like lead from our heavy lift a mere 11 hours ago. My breathing is ragged. Sweat runs down my face. In the gymnasium, the lights...

The Life of a College Athlete

It is 5-something a.m. on a Friday. The first lights of dawn have yet to color the sky.
