The Story Behind the K

While we formed and officially rolled out SwizzleSticks Lacrosse in the fall of 2013, Angie Kensinger had used the name for a middle school girls' team the prior few summers and we thought it was perfect. We wanted the program to reflect Coach K's passion for girls' lacrosse, so we set out to instill a love for the game through phenomenal coaching, a positive atmosphere, and an emphasis on the life-lessons prevalent in athletics and team sports. Coach K was insistent that SwizzleSticks be a program that would be embraced by any 3rd through 8th grade girl, regardless of her experience and talent level, and it thrived under her leadership. Coach K and her husband, known to the lacrosse community as Mr. Coach K, passed away unexpectedly in 2019. Words cannot describe how much we miss our two dear friends and our organization will never be the same without Angie's buoyant presence, but we will strive every day to carry out Coach K's vision and continue one of her great legacies.
