Seasons on Wicked: 5 Seasons
Years Playing Ultimate: 5.5 Years
Favorite Female Athlete: "Beezie Madden! I've always admired the partnerships she has with the horses she rides. She's a fierce, dedicated competitor who is also a super chill, down-to-earth person. #goals"
LG's Special Talent: "Jumping horses! I've been riding horses in the hunter-jumper discipline since I was 11 years old. I love spending time at the barn working with the horses when I'm not playing ultimate. Currently, I've got a partnership with one of my trainer's young horses and I am loving every minute of working with her."
About Being a Part of Wicked: "Wicked is my family. Moving to Kansas City was extremely intimidating for me because I only knew one person when I moved. It took me a while to really feel connected to people in a meaningful way. Joining Wicked surrounded me with a group of strong, passionate, and vibrant women. I am proud to be a part of Wicked and so thankful for my amazing teammates and friends #wickedlove "
One Goal LG has for the Season: "I am working on improving my confidence and decision making with the disc. I want to focus on smart throws that help push the flow of our offense."
