FUNDRAISER DINNER TO HELP GET MCHS LAX PLAYER OVERSEAS

Mifflin County junior lacrosse player Mara Gallo has been selected to join 23 other student-athletes from the United States to play lacrosse in Barcelona, Spain this summer!

Mara has been with the Mifflin County LAX program since 2020, getting her start as a manager for two seasons before debuting as a varsity midfielder as a freshman. 

The international program is sponsored by Beyond Sports. In addition to competing against and learning from elite lacrosse players and coaches, Mara will also participate in leadership development workshops and a community service learning activity. 

“I nominated Mara because of her dedication and commitment to achieving excellence in skill development, personal growth, team development, leadership on and off the field, high academic achievement in the classroom and elite personal character,” said Huskies’ head coach Theresa Lamont.

 Mara will be overseas from July 30th through August 7th but will be doing some fundraising for her trip, including a spaghetti dinner this Saturday, April 13 from 4-6 pm at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lewistown. Tickets are only ten dollars. For more details on Mara, the dinner and her trip, click below for our exclusive interview with the Husky star.
