Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Palm Harbor University High School
Palm Harbor, FL
Christina Hayworth is a lacrosse player from Palm Harbor University High School. She honors the game through respect for opponents. "I play the sports I play because I love to play them, above all. To keep the game fun and engaging, I ensure that I respect the principles of lacrosse. Every game is ended with a cheer: “Thank you fans, thank you officials, good game (opponent name), way to go Canes!” (our team name). Over the last year, I have undertaken the responsibility of leading this cheer, for it is a small but very important gesture in the game. Win, lose, or tie, I always remember those who have put forth their time to get the players to where they are now."
Christina’s coach sees her making a positive impact, even on the sidelines. “Christina makes oneself better by setting goals on and off the field, balances her academics with athletics and gives back to her community. Christina has worked to overcome a variety of injuries that impacted her last two seasons. She continued to show up at practice, to assist those lesser skilled players and to help the coaching staff by designing and leading the practices. Christina makes the sport better by always honoring the game, supporting her team and leading by example. She is an active member of our leadership council and is a critical part of our program and what we are working to establish.”
