US Lacrosse has named the winners of the prestigious Jackie Pitts Award for all chapters. The award honors those who combine academic and service as well as leadership with athletic accomplishments.

According to US Lacrosse, “This award recognizes a graduating senior in each chapter who truly honors the game of lacrosse, is invested in the development of the game in her community, is an exceptional player who continually strives to improve her game, and is an exemplary member of her team. She exemplifies the spirit of the game, on and off the field. Academically, she is an outstanding student and a valued role model in her school.”

Rockford High School Girls Lacrosse player Erika Neumen has been selected by US Lacrosse as the Michigan Chapter Jackie Pitts Award winner. She is one of 35 girls around the country selected to receive this award. This is the first time a girls lacrosse player from Michigan has received this award.

Erika commented, “I have been blessed with great coaches, both in high school and with my club team the Michigan Cyclones, but I would not have been able to receive such an honor without the good fortune of playing with some great teammates”.
