Why I Use STX

 

“First and foremost, STX has

been the leader in

technology and

development in equipment

for years, so from an

equipment standpoint, it

was a no-brainer. More

importantly, I wanted to

align myself with STX

because they understand

and support my beliefs. They

know I bring much more to

the table than just being a

lacrosse athlete. They were

willing to give me a platform

to utilize for topics that are

important ot me, like

equality for female athletes,

growing our sport,

entrepreneurship, and

inspiring female athletes to

set goals."
