“I feel like my experience at NorthStar has made me a better player and I’ll be able to bring what I’ve learned home and make my team stronger.”
Carly Fine, a junior at Bayside High School in Queens, was one of two selected student-athletes to attend the elite NorthStar Invitational camp this summer. She started playing attack her freshman year and has slowly transitioned to become a strong midfield player who stands out on the field not just for her skills, but also for her character and commitment. Carly explains, “I feel like my experience at NorthStar has made me a better player and I’ll be able to bring what I’ve learned home and explain to my teammates different perspectives of lacrosse, which will make my team stronger.”
Carly also attended the inaugural CityLax Summer Camp hosted by Big Apple in July as part of a continued effort to improve her game. “The CityLax Summer Camp was a lot of fun and I was able to build myself up and strengthen my skills through the practice and drills everyday,” says Carly. “I also got to play with girls from different teams that I played against during the spring, which was cool.” While there, Carly also learned about the college application process, which helped her to visualize her dreams of going to college and becoming a nurse practitioner.
