I played lacrosse right after my sophomore year. I was able to play with Woodbridge and Edison club teams. While playing lacrosse I attended numerous camps and clinics where I was able to get training that assisted me during my club experience. While attending my camps I won various prizes for events/games and was awarded Camper of the week on a couple of occasions. I started working as a coach for Storm in 2012. I also have been working for both OCLA and OC US Lacrosse for three years as a Field General.

Lena Huebscher

Hi my name is Lena Huebscher and I am going to be a senior at Santa Margarita Catholic High school this coming school year. I have played lacrosse since middle school and this coming season will be my third on varsity at SM. Along with high school I have also been a part of many club teams which include: SOCAL, Team OC, Crosier Lacrosse Club, and XTeam. Being a member of XTeam, I was able to travel all over the US and experience a very high level of intensity brought upon by collegiate coaches. This level of intensity and experience allowed me to try out and make the Southern California National Women’s Lacrosse Team in 2011, where I traveled to Stoneybrook, New York, and played in the Women’s Division National Tournament. As the years passed, I was introduced to many different styles of coaching. I plan to take the best from each of my experiences and apply them to try and help the Mission Viejo Lacrosse Club and the many girls who will be participating in it. I would like to help support the continued growth of Women’s lacrosse here in Southern California because it is truly a wonderful game to play, and a great opportunity to make many new friends!
