Norman is back on the field for the GHS lacrosse team, battling back from a surgery prior to the season. After a grueling rehab, she made her 2021 lacrosse debut as the Guardians defeated East Catholic 14-5 on May 13.
“I was nervous to go out on the field, but my teammates were all very supportive and kept reminding me that it was going to be okay, and it was great to go out and play,” Norman said her return.
Last Wednesday, the senior captain scored a goal in a 17-3 victory over Granby Memoria in her first game at GHS since returning.
Norman is also an All-State/All-Conference field hockey player at the high school and was named to the CHSCA’s All-Academic team in the fall.
Outside of athletics, she is part of Best Buddies, Interact, and Advisory. Next fall, she will be attending Fairfield University, majoring in nursing.
