Grigsby began playing lacrosse her freshman year at Clayton Valley Charter and said, “I have looked forward to my senior season, specifically senior night, since the moment I began playing. We had a very strong team this season and were likely to go very far. Unfortunately, our season was cut short due to COVID-19.” This was her third year on the Ugly Eagles varsity, where she played as an attacker. “It’s disappointing to know I played my last game of lacrosse without even realizing it. My teammates turned into my best friends and it’s a shame I no longer get to see them every day while doing what we love.”
CVCHS lacrosse coach Jenna Ebert’s team won four of its first five games before the season ended abruptly in March. “My experience coaching Sarah has been great. She is always positive, working hard and growing as a player. Her teammates look to her as a positive role model and someone they can trust on and off the field,” the coach said. Grigsby will attend Cal Poly SLO in the fall.
