    Play For Coach K

    With heavy hearts but determined spirits, on Thursday evening the Varsity Girls’ Lacrosse team won their first game without their beloved Head Coach Angie Kensinger, affectionately known as Coach K. Angie and her husband, Stuart, and four other Houstonians were taken from our community in a tragic plane crash Monday, with just a few weeks left in the lacrosse season. As game time approached on Thursday, the team chose to honor Angie in the best way they knew how – they decided to play for Coach K. The players’ parents invited all community members to come together for a pregame dinner at Caven Field. The game started with respectful words about both the Kensingers' role in the lives of over two decades of lacrosse players and a moment of silence followed by a prayer from Director of Spiritual Life Ned Mulligan. Sophie Caldwell, Class of 2019, sang the national anthem.
