Kayleigh Boveri, a Falls Church High School senior and two-year varsity girls lacrosse team co-captain, was just named Player of the Year by the National District.
Boveri is a four-year varsity starter with 336 total career points to date. She is the 2012 leader in all-team stat categories with a high school career list of 77 goals, 37 assists, 21 caused turnovers, 64 ground balls, 25 interceptions, and 106 draw controls. She has been on the First Team All-District for all four years, was named Honorable Mention All-Region her freshmen and junior year, and will be up for nomination again this year for a spot (although guaranteed an All-Region spot for 2012 as a result of being named the Player of the Year for her district).
Boveri not only has impressive game statistics, but her explosive player character and team-first mentality make her an exceptional contributor to the girls lacrosse program at Falls Church High School. She demonstrates leadership, dedication and perseverance at difficult times which has helped the program to continue to improve and succeed.
The girls lacrosse team has won its first round of districts and will be moving on to the district semi-finals as well as the regional playoffs.
