Panagiota Tsilfides ’11
Lacrosse goalie Panagiota Tsilfides prides herself in the wins of the entire team, but her work in the goal greatly adds to the team’s success. Her role, in addition to stopping the other team from scoring, is to call plays and advice to the players on the rest of the field. Her ability to inform the team has lead the team to some huge victories over “powerhouses” such as Greenwich and New Canaan, Tsilfides said. However, she gives much credit to her teammates and their great support; “We all  work so well together and when we have fun, we play very well.”
