Member of the Month: ERV, Grace New, Grace Nelson

Athletic Lab is made up of a diverse group of goal-oriented and hard-working individuals. That’s why we take a moment each month to highlight one (or more) of our members in our member of the month feature. For the month of February, we’ve chosen three of our Scholastic Athletes. Ella Reaves Vaughan (ERV), Grace New, and Grace Nelson are lacrosse players at Cardinal Gibbons. Though they have spent their high school years on the same lacrosse team, and several months (or in some cases, years) training together at Athletic Lab, they will all be going off to separate schools to continue their lacrosse careers. ERV will be attending the University of Virginia,  Grace New the University of Louisville, and Grace Nelson THE Ohio State University. All three have been working hard in their group private sessions as part of our Scholastic Sports Performance Program. You can check out our previous members of the month here.
