Grab a stick and get ready to play the fastest game on two feet. What began as an East Coast sport is turning into a worldwide phenomenon. Lacrosse is fast-paced, action-packed, and exciting - and there has never been a better time to pick up a stick. With star players thriving in high schools, colleges, and national teams around the world, lacrosse's popularity is taking off! The history, the rules, and the heroines: these nonfiction accounts of women's sports relate the interesting insights of each sport, including the rules, game play, and standout athletes. Girls looking for role models as well as the "hows and whys" of their favorite game will find the answers in these fresh, accessible titles. Part history, part biography, and part instruction, Girls Play to Win allows readers to access "everything they want to know" about the game. More than an introduction, this series takes what is likely an existing interest and allows the reader to delve deeper. Content consultants are real-world experts that include Olympic athletes and coaches. Library Media Connection's Editor's Choice
