Support women’s lacrosse

Dear Editor:

I understand that Aspen High School (my alma mater!) is raising money to start a women’s lacrosse team in Aspen. I just wanted to say that I am going to contribute to the fund because playing women’s sports in Aspen meant so much to me.

I was on the first women’s high school ice hockey team … first to Aspen and one of the first in the country … and not only did I love the sport itself but loved the opportunity to play a team sport with women.

Now I am a pro athlete and am using so many of the lessons that I learned through playing soccer, volleyball, ice hockey and snowboarding in Aspen. I urge everyone to think about donating so that more girls in Aspen can enjoy the experience of playing a team sport like lacrosse.
