Future Grizzly named high school All-American

Posted: Thursday, Jul 11th, 2013

Kate Cox signs a national letter of intent to play lacrosse for Adams State University.

ALAMOSA Kate Cox, who will join the ASU women's lacrosse team this upcoming season, has been named a high school All-American by US Lacrosse. Cox is one of 80 high school girls invited to play in the All-American Showcase Games July 22-24 in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The final game will be shown on ESPN3 at 1 p.m., July 24.

"I am honored to have been chosen as an All-American," Cox stated. "I couldn't have done it without my dad and my whole team who helped me along the way."

The Lee's Summit, Missouri native scored 103 goals and tallied 45 assists in three years of prep lacrosse at Lee's Summit High School. Cox was also selected as a 2013 Metro All-Star by the Kansas City Metro Girls Lacrosse Association and was voted Team Captain for 2013 by her teammates. She was also the leading scorer during each season she played at Lee's Summit and now holds the school-record for the school.

Cox also is the first female to ever sign a national letter of intent to play collegiate lacrosse in her school district's history.

"She (Cox) is a great player that is always striving to get to the next level, which is evident by her achievements," said ASU women's lacrosse Head Coach Mariana DiGiovanni. "Kate has fit in with the team since she came to campus for our camp."

Following the All-American Showcase Games, Cox will prepare for her arrival on the campus that seemed to fit from day one.

"The coaches and the team were the reason I picked ASU. They treated me like family from the minute I stepped onto the field, which is something I need when my real family is 14 hours away," Cox said. "I also like that it was a smaller school, and it had my major."

DiGiovanni echoed that same sense of excitement. "The coaching staff at ASU is very excited to have Kate as part of the incoming class for 2013-14. She will bring a lot to the team both on and off the lacrosse field."
