Girls Lacrosee: Welzin named All-State

Rachael Welzin-All-State Selection
For the second year in a row a Farmington girls lacrosse player has has landed a spot on the Coaches Association All-State team.

Junior Rachael Welzin will be officially recognized at a state post-season awards banquet scheduled for Monday. Last year Tiger Haley Bradshaw earned all-state honors.

Welzin had a breakout junior year, tying Bradshaw's regular season school record for goals with 42 and establishing new marks in assists (14) and total points (56).

"Most importantly, Rachael is a tremendous leader, someone the girls can look up to on and off the field," coach Dan Pickens said. "She works hard in practice, makes good decisions off the field, and does well in school. 

"She is a very fast, strong, athletic, and competitive player. When she puts those cleats on and steps on the field she does whatever it takes to win games...More good things are coming for her. I can't wait to see what kind of a product we are going to put on the field next year, including our leading goal scorer."
