Katrina Dowd | S2 E9

Katrina Dowd has always been different. Growing up in Yorktown, Dowd idolized creative players like Mikey Powell.

Eventually, she chose to head to Evanston, Ill. to attend Northwestern, a school rising in prominence in the lacrosse world. Four years later, Dowd left at the beginning of a dynasty.

Now back in her second stint with the U.S. national team, Dowd said her skill is what has given her longevity. Dowd talks with fellow Yorktown native Paul Carcaterra about her lacrosse journey.

Joey Sankey | S2 E8

Joey Sankey has been challenged more than most these past few years. Sankey, North Carolina’s all-time leading scorer, missed the better part of two seasons with multiple knee injuries — and a battle with testicular cancer.

But he prevailed. Sankey has been one of the toughest players on the field, and he’s had to be. At 5 feet, 5 inches, he’s had to hold his own in the game of lacrosse.

Now back to lacrosse as a member of the PLL’s Redwoods, Sankey reflects on the past few years with Paul Carcaterra.

Lars Tiffany | S2 E7

Lars Tiffany’s lacrosse journey reached its peak on Memorial Day, when his Virginia team won its first national championship since 2011.

The title was a culmination of three years of building for Tiffany and the Cavaliers, who went from the ACC cellar to the pinnacle of college lacrosse. During his press conference, Tiffany was quick to pay homage to the roots of the game.

And it’s fitting. Tiffany grew up near the Onondaga reservation in Upstate New York, playing with Native Americans and working on his father’s bison farm. His love for lacrosse took him to Brown, where he played and later coached.

Through all of his coaching stops, Tiffany never lost his love for lacrosse. He speaks with Paul Carcaterra about what started it all, the inspiration from his parents, why he left Brown for Virginia and much more.
