Shannen Calandra propels RFA girls lacrosse to victory over undefeated Whitesboro. Rome and Whitesboro played on 5/1 as they both came in as undefeated in the TVL. Rome won 14-5 and Shannen led our offense with 4 goals. Shannen not only led our team in goals against Whitesboro, but she does so much more than what the stats show. Her hard work and constant hustle is second to none. Shannen leads by example on the field and is deadly when she gets the ball in the 8. Shannen currently has 17 goals, 3 assists and 9 ground balls so far this season.
