Great job by second year head coach Hannah Nielsen. She has 11 wins already after a season and 4 games in 2019. All her predecessor could muster was 20 wins......in 4 years.

Chicks with sticks!  

Any MgoBloggers with young daughters get your girls a LAX stick and start them playing early.  It’s an awesome sport for girls and fun to watch as a parent.

It’s more of a Midwest thing and lack of experienced officials.  When the girls are skilled and the officials let them play, like they do out east, it’s a thing of beauty.   It’s getting better.  

Boys Lax is like Hockey.  Girls Lax should be played like basketball.  You can’t foul but it’s very physical.
