Even though her high school career is nearly over, Lestina still finds it surreal to be playing for the team she used to cheer for.
“I love playing for LT,” Lestina said. “I used to come to games when I was in middle school and watch them. The girls all looked so big and it was just a team I wanted to play on.
“Now being on it is like a dream come true. I’m on the team that I used to watch when I was little so it’s really great.
“It’s crazy to think that I’m the person that those other girls were to me. It’s cool.”
Lestina is excited to be continuing her soccer career at Loyola, where she is planning on majoring in journalism. She doesn’t know exactly how her journalism career will begin, but if it’s anything like her prep soccer career, she’ll write a great ending.
