Year 10 pupil Dakota has been named as Captain of the North of England Metros ahead of the elite squad's tour to the USA.
The England Metros are an elite squad of U17 players selected from schools and lacrosse clubs across the North of England. From 20th July to 4th August, from a base Annapolis, Maryland, they will visit and play at various venues on the East coast during the two week tour.
To be named Captain of such a talented squad as they act as ambassadors of lacrosse overseas is an enormous honour and a testament to the hard work and dedication Dakota has consistently displayed to her sport. Congratulations and good luck!
