It didn’t take long for teams to get to know Lexi Darnell.
The Boone Grove forward burst onto the scene last season with 35 goals and 19 assists as a freshman. She gives first-year coach Katie Mckinney a dynamic scorer.
Mckinney has come away most impressed with how Darnell — who shows a maturity beyond her age — has carried herself. Mckinney named her team captain.
“I couldn’t believe she was only a sophomore,” Mckinney said. “With our team being as diverse as it is talent-wise, it’s easy for players like her to get frustrated with the girls who aren’t at their level, but she’s never been that way. She’s an outstanding team player and individual player.”
