Hope Poolos, a 2016 graduate of Notre Dame Academy, recently represented the city of Sylvania across the globe as a Midfield player on the USA lacrosse team.

A student at Ohio Wesleyan University, Poolos was selected to play along with other Division 1 and 3 athletes from the Midwest and East coast. Each player on the USA team was nominated by their coach and then, after careful consideration, was invited to play in Europe. Poolos played in the Prague Lacrosse Cup in the Czech Republic and played in China, the Netherlands, Austria, and Germany. Together, Poolos and her team had a total of four wins and three losses throughout their tour.
