Incoming women's lacrosse freshman Morgan Walker of Glastonbury High School was tabbed The Courant's Player of the Year over the weekend.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS: After back-to-back losses in the semifinals the last two seasons, she helped lead Glastonbury (15-5) to the first state championship appearance in program history. The Tomahawks came up short to Greenwich, 12-10, in the Division L final. ... A tri-captain, she played all 20 games with 28 goals and 24 assists. Averaged 1.4 goals per game and 2.6 points per game. ... Scored three or more goals in a game five times. ... Had eight goals and one assist during Glastonbury's tournament run to the championship. ... A U.S. Lacrosse High School All American and All-CCC North selection. ... Four year letter-winner and three-year starter.

WALKER SAID: "I just try to play the game like I know how to play it and practicing and working hard has always paid off for me. Stats are not on my priority list. I don't even know how many goals I had this year. I think being a leader on the team is just as important. Ever since we made to the semifinals as sophomores we wanted to make it the finals, so [this season] had been in the works for a while. ... My size [5 feet 2] has always been a thing; people have always said she is so small. But all the coaches I have talked to always said 'you've always made yourself big.'"
