Kylie will participate in the US Lacrosse National Tournament held in Maryland in May.
Kylie Terrell, a junior at Flagler Palm Coast High School, and a midfielder on the lacrosse team, will be representing Flagler County and North Florida as she competes in the U.S. Lacrosse National Tournament held in Maryland in May.
Tryouts were held in Jacksonville for the North Florida team on March 28. She competed against more than 60 girls for a chance to be selected to play on the North Florida team, and was one of 18 selected to participate.
The tournament is one of the largest women's lacrosse events, with over 60 teams competing. She also made the North Florida team in 2019, but due to COVID, the 2020 tournament was canceled. Terrell is excited for a second chance to play for this team at the national tournament, in part because it will give her an opportunity to showcase her skills in front of college coaches.
When asked what she likes best about playing lacrosse, she said, "Meeting new people and making new friendships both on and off the field."
Terrell plays lacrosse year round; she plays on a travel team out of Orlando called Storm Select. What does she like to do when she's not playing lacrosse? "I like to barrel race and hang out with friends at the beach," she said.
