She tallied a career-high 28 goals this past season as a junior on the Masuk (Monroe, Conn.) girls soccer team, netting goals in 14 of the 19 games she played in.

But it’s Lawrence’s 15 assists that really make her happy. She does everything she can to incorporate her teammates into a game. However, when a game is on the line, Lawrence isn’t afraid to take over.

“My teammates know when I’m serious I want the ball immediately, they’ll give it to me,” said Lawrence, who plays forward. “They know I’m calling for it loudly or really aggressive with it. OK, we’ve got to give her the ball, she’s going to do something here. They really understand it, which is great. I just go and do my thing.”
