US Lacrosse 2014 Jackie Pitts Award to Bridgette Soucy
2014 Jackie Pitts Award recipient - Bridgette Soucy
Weaver Athletic Association is enormously proud of girl’s lacrosse coach and player, Bridgette Soucy for being named recipient of the 2014 Jackie Pitts Award for the Richmond region by US Lacrosse. Her work ethic on and off of the field is exemplary. In addition, her willingness to teach others and give back to the sport has been a catalyst for so many. Bridgette exemplifies this honor and we are delighted to celebrate with her. She is one of 35 girls around the country selected to receive this award.
The prestigious Jackie Pitts Award of US Lacrosse honors those who combine academic and service, as well as leadership, with athletic accomplishments. According to US Lacrosse, “This award recognizes a graduating senior in each chapter who truly honors the game of lacrosse, is invested in the development of the game in her community, is an exceptional player who continually strives to improve her game, and is an exemplary member of her team. She exemplifies the spirit of the game, on and off the field. Academically, she is an outstanding student and a valued role model in her school.”
Midlothian High School student Bridgette Soucy, nominated by her coach, DeVoe Reagan, has been selected by US Lacrosse as the Richmond Chapter Jackie Pitts Award winner. This is the first time a girls lacrosse player from Weaver Athletic Association, Midlothian Lacrosse Club or Midlothian High School has received this award. Bridgette has served as her team’s goalie since 2007. During the four years of high school play, she led her defensive team in four state championships, winning three consecutive state top honors. Bridgette has been a volunteer coach working with the Weaver Girls Lacrosse program since 2010, coaching elementary and middle school players. Becoming a certified US Lacrosse Official in 2011 completed her 360 degree approach to all aspects of participation and interest in the game. Bridgette is a 2014 honor graduate of Midlothian High School’s Advanced College Preparatory Program, with a 4.08 weighted GPA and a 3.8 un-weighted GPA. She is the recipient of the Engineering and Architecture Student of the Year Award, a member of National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta and served as President of Latin Club. This fall Bridgette will attend Florida Institute of Technology’s, College of Engineering where she will major in Ocean Engineering. She has also signed an NCAA letter of intent as F. I. Tech’s first Women’s Lacrosse Panther Goalkeeper.
Bridgette commented, “I have been blessed with great athletic coaches, from Maryland and Virginia, in high school sports, in club lacrosse and with Weaver Athletic Association. I have had wonderful role models in loving the game of lacrosse for the sheer beauty of the game, as a player, a coach and an official. I know the benefit of getting young players involved early, in making it fun, giving them real role models and the satisfaction of seeing their successes. Thanks also to the makers of the movie “Crooked Arrows” as it is my go-to, feel-good, get-fired-up movie of all time! My tradition of watching it every year was the secret to three consecutive state championships!”
