Junior girls lacrosse star Sammi Galinson is the Mighty Silver & Royal Blue athlete of the week. Sammi has scored an astounding 14 goals through the first 3 games of the season. Head coach Jon Smart said of Sammi, “She continues her junior year where she left off her sophomore season, as a solid offensive threat.” Last year the girls lacrosse team only won 2 games. They are off to a 2-2 start so far this season, and Sammi is a big reason why. Congratulations on the nice start, and good luck the rest of the season!

What is on your playlist on game day to get you pumped up?

Beyonce. Hope Doctor and I listen to “Panda” by Desiigner.

Do you have any superstitions?

I have a pair of lucky spandex that I make sure to wear if we have a big game.

I loved basketball player Aaron Kraft from Ohio State. He was a tenacious defender.

What is your best goal scoring move? 

I will switch right, pump right, then switch back to left and hit upper right corner of the net.

Is there a certain meal or snack that you eat on game day?

I don’t like to eat before games, so I’ll maybe have a granola bar.

What is your favorite class that you have taken at HHS?

I really liked AP US History. I felt like I learned a lot, and it was one of my first AP experiences and it was really positive. I had Mr. Swenson as a teacher.

If you had to get stuck in an elevator with one teammate, who would it be? 

Lucy Swift. I’ve known her forever, she’d be quiet and not get on my nerves. We are good friends.

Where do you hope to be 4 years from now?

I hope to be a Junior in college, hopefully have my major figured out.

Invisibility. I would love to sneak around and be able to hear things. It would be fun to not be seen by everyone.

I played in Chapel Hill (NC) in February. It was so cool to play on the University of North Carolina campus.
