Anna Grace Agro Named to 2023 WCLA Second Team All American

Anna Grace “G” Agro, #2, has been named to the 2023 WCLA All American Second Team. Agro is a grad student, who joined the club in the fall of 2018. Injuries limited her playing time to just 15 games in her first four seasons. This year, injury free Anna Grace has shown herself to be a leading player on MSU’s offense. 

Anna Grace finished the season second in assists and total points in the nation and was named to the Midwest Women’s Lacrosse League’s (MWLL) first team in all league post season awards.

“G is a quiet leader, her calming influence felt by all on the team,” Head Coach Brent Hiner said. “Very unassuming, she is loved by her teammates and the coaching staff for her unselfish play and her ability to control the pace of a game.”

MSU x JanieLax Lacrosse Clinic

Last month, the MSU women’s lacrosse team hosted a clinic at the Spartan Green Turf Facility with JanieLax, a lacrosse community from Ontario, Canada. JanieLax aims to promote the idea that sports should be accessible and inclusive to everyone. 

The team had a fun day educating and playing alongside these young lacrosse girls! Despite the cold weather, they were able to make the most of the clinic – spending 5 hours doing drills, scrimmaging, and playing lacrosse games. 

Thank you JanieLax for bringing your club to our facility and reminding our team of the happiness and fun we all get from playing this sport.
