"They Are Truly Team Players"

The Lynch Twins '15

Sisters Bridget and Kayla Lynch strike a very familiar pose.

When a varsity coach identifies players on his team he would "rather not coach against," it's considered a ringing endorsement. Such is the case with Vito La Francesca, head coach of Lasell Women's Soccer, when speaking of Bridget and Kayla Lynch '15.

In La Francesca's words, the twin juniors are "very intelligent and driven young women. On the field, they are hard workers, extremely coachable and very competitive. Off the field, they are motivated in the classroom and are great leaders within our program," he tells Leaves. "They are a coach's dream, always looking for ways to improve."

The sisters, who hail from Dover, New Hampshire, developed an early interest in the game, following in the footsteps of their mother, who coached them in youth soccer. Both chose Lasell for its Soccer program, and both have excelled playing the forward position. After graduation, the Exercise Science majors hope to pursue graduate school and careers in physical therapy.

Numbers 5 and 19 both "possess the rare ability to take over a game while remaining unselfish," La Francesca adds. "They are truly team players."

As alike as these team players may be (both enjoy quality time with their parents and older brother, root for the Boston Bruins and New England Patriots, and favor tropical vacations), there are some definite differences between the two when it comes to "favorites," as the sidebar here reveals.
