Lacrosse season has just begun, but we want you to be aware that some try outs for summer lacrosse tournament teams are happening soon. You can view a list of summer lacrosse clubs and their try out dates on the WSLA “Summer Ball” web page.
Bellevue East Lacrosse player Camille Sullivan has committed to play NCAA D1 Lacrosse with Princeton. Washington State Prep Lacrosse wrote a great article about Camille and her achievements as a multi-sport athlete and straight-A student in their article, “Three-sport Interlake star chooses lacrosse, commits to NCAA D1 Princeton.”
The article is very robust in describing Camille’s achievements as an athlete and scholar. But around Bellevue East Lacrosse, we’ve known that Camille is special for many years, because she’s played with our club since 6th grade. She has always been a very fierce competitor and a leader on her team at every level. In 2011, as a Varsity Freshman athlete, Camille was a key leader on the team that won the Division II High School State Championship for Bellevue East Lacrosse. She’s been an assistant coach at the youth levels for several seasons, and for the 2014 season she’ll be the Head Coach of the U13 team.
Camille’s mother, Karen Sullivan, is the current Field Manager and a has been a Board member of Bellevue East Lacrosse for more than five years. Karen helps with all aspects of the high school program and has been an advocate for women’s lacrosse in our area for many years. Karen is passionate about conditioning for high school athletes, educating and implementing programs in our club to help high schoolers understand the need for proper conditioning in order to be competitive in women’s lacrosse. Karen is a diplomatic spokesperson for our club in all matters involving the League and has been instrumental in hiring and retaining female lacrosse coaches in our club.
Congratulations to both Camille and Karen on this special achievement.
