Adelie Johnson and her Orange Crush Middle School Elite teammates had a solid showing at the 2019 Southern Alliance Tournament. Despite facing some adversity during pool play, the ladies fought back hard and danced their way into the semifinals. During their playoff run, the Orange Crush secured a 5-4 win over Lax Maniax Elite, and even managed to upset Grizzly Elite, the number 1 seed out of pool B.
The Orange Crush didn’t have an easy game on their schedule all weekend. Every single win was hard fought, and every loss only proved how resilient the squad was. Although the Orange Crush didn’t go home with the championship title, Adelie said that her team played beautifully and worked extremely well together. “The SAT is always such a great tournament, and as a team, it helps us build and grow,” she said. The SAT allowed Adelie and her squad to find out what they were made of, and they look forward to a summer full of competing together.
Adelie’s best attribute as a lacrosse player is her speed, and she knows it. The 13-year-old has been playing for 6 years, and over the years her speed has allowed her to develop into a fearless midfielder. If the ball is in play, you can count on Adelie being on top of it, or open for a pass. You don’t see speed like that every day. Oh, and did we mention? She’ll be representing her squad at the National Lacrosse Classic this summer!
