Coach Victoria recently coached the Team 91 Carolina HS White team. She is an NC State alumni who graduated from Holly Springs High School after playing for four years on varsity. During her time she was both junior and senior captain. Her lacrosse career ended before college due to injury, but she was able to experience the college recruitment process — something that she is still passionate about. Since her playing career ended, she has enjoyed training individuals for strength and conditioning as well as helping middle and high school girls' lacrosse players develop their talents by coaching with NCLA.
