Favorite Memory: Grazewski’s favorite memory tracks back to her freshman year of lacrosse. As a freshman, Grazewski and the varsity squad came together to win the East Sectional Final.

Quote: “Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practices and the coaches who have pushed… is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… Play for her”
