Coming into the 2020 season, Maryland goalie Emily Sterling had some pretty big shoes to fill.
Arguably the best goalie ever in Megan Taylor had just graduated and it was Emily’s turn to take the reins.
But as Sterling will tell you the Maryland women’s lax coaches did a wonderful job in making sure to emphasize you are two completely different goalies. We don’t need you to be Meg, we need you to be Em.
Emily joins the podcast to discuss her upbringing in Bel Air, MD with the sport of lacrosse and how she ended up defending the cage for the University of Maryland.
Before even playing for Maryland, Emily suffered a pretty bad knee injury and we discuss how she overcame that injury both mentally and physically. How do you bond with teammates when you’re on the sideline and not playing lacrosse?
Lacrosse is my passion! The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Specifically the most bad a$$ part of that community - the goalies! After learning to play goalie from scratch, I wanted to create a site where I could share what I learned with others so they too can become champions in the crease and in life.
