12.15.2017 Zap Cap Coach of the Month
Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Steinbrenner High School
Laurde Ransdell is a lacrosse player from Steinbrenner High School. Not only does she focus on her own athletic goals, but she also gives back and helps teach young players. “To help honor the game I volunteered to be a goalie coach for an elementary/middle school lacrosse team. I went to the practices and would warm up the goalies and try to help with technique. Then I would stand behind the goal during drills. I would observe them during the drills and note what we needed to work on. I also went to some of their games to help out with warming the goalie up and during the game. I think its important to help expand the game to future generations.”
Coaches of rival teams say that Lauren anchors her team and is an enthusiastic student of the game. "In a competitive game, Lauren naturally assumes that leadership position on the field. Since her freshman year, Lauren has worked hard on her skills and abilities on the lacrosse field. In becoming a goalie to be reckoned with through her own hard work, Lauren sets a high standard for play and attitude on her team. Lauren is kind and generous with her community, her teammates and her opponents. No matter the final score, Lauren is an athlete who sets a positive tone for her team and for the game. She is a shining example of what the sport is all about."
