The US Lacrosse Players of the Week recognize the most outstanding individual performances in high school girls’ lacrosse in each of the five regions — Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest and West — outlined in our high school coverage.

NORTHEAST

Kylee Colbert, North Shore (N.Y.)

Colbert was listed as one of the Northeast’s players to watch in the preseason, and she showed why in North Shore’s opening game of the season. The sophomore midfielder, the youngest of three lacrosse-playing siblings, scored six goals in a 9-8 victory over Syosset (N.Y.).

“Kylee is an unbelievable lacrosse player who is all over the field,” North Shore coach Meg McCormack said. “She can dodge and get to the cage seamlessly with her quick first step, makes big stops on the defensive end and is a valuable member of our transition game. Kylee has extremely high lacrosse IQ, which translates to reading lanes.”

Also notable: Grace Gately, Manhasset (N.Y.); Dillyn Patten, New Canaan (Conn.); Raegan Bailey, Cheshire (Conn.); Ceci Stein, Darien (Conn.); Kate Licciardi, St. Anthony’s (N.Y.)

MID-ATLANTIC

Katie Buck, Moorestown (N.J.)

The junior Rutgers commit has dominated the draw circle with 50 draw controls through 10 games. She also leads the 5-0 Quakers in scoring with 16 goals and six assists. She scored four goals and had one assist with 14 draw controls in a 9-8 win over Rancocas Valley (N.J.) on April 28, then she came up with nine draw controls and three more points in an 11-3 win over rival Shawnee on Saturday.

Also notable: Caroline Godine, McDonogh (Md.); Nancy Halleron, Notre Dame Prep (Md.); Grace Muldoon, Stone Ridge (Md.); Rita Peterson, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes (Va.); Grace Smith, Oak Knoll (N.J.)

Brooke Goldstein, American Heritage-Delray (Fla.)

Also notable: Sami Lowinger, Ponte Vedra (Fla.)
