Although she grew up playing tennis, Koyuki Fritchman is a captain and the leader of the Klahowya Secondary School girls lacrosse team.

The 18-year-old senior scored five goals to lead the Lady Eagles to a 19-5 victory over North Kitsap High School at home Tuesday. With the win, the team improved its record to 3-4.

Made up of players from Klahowya, Central Kitsap High School and Central Kitsap and Ridgetop junior high schools, the Lady Eagles belong to the Washington School Girls Lacrosse Association.

Q: How long have you been a team captain?

A: Being a leader, a role model. The freshmen look up to me, and if I do something wrong, I feel terrible about it.

A: AP Physics “B”

Q: How long have you been playing lacrosse?
