GIRLS LACROSSE

Tearing out of her zone or tearing down an opponent’s attack, Logan Book plain tore it up in Connecticut girls’ lacrosse.

Logan has one of the most legal checks around and can strip a player outright.

“Logan was one of the most aggressive players I ever coached,” Darien coach Lisa Lindley said of the senior defender who next catches a wave with Annapolis as a plebe in the fall. “She would bring 100 percent intensity to every practice and game.”

It showed. Book was chosen as the state’s 2017 Player of the Year in the sport for her efforts.

“Being on this team was everything to me, and I was surrounded by such a great group of hardworking girls,” said Book, helping to keep Darien FCIAC and CIAC Class L champion last spring. “I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience. And it’s really setting me up for a really great future at the Naval Academy. I’m really happy I got to share this with all my teammates.”

Opponents shared too. So often sharing the ball with her against their will.

“Logan has one of the most legal checks around and can strip a player outright,” said Lindley.

“I just think that this team really taught me what it means to work hard and to work together, as well as be a leader,” Book said. “So, I am always going to keep this in my back pocket.”
