Prosvirninia is getting her game in order for West Seneca East
And the best part about that is that West Seneca East still gets another year out of her.
"Katy's a standout for us," WSE coach Rick Schmitt said. "She's got it all together and she's a junior so she's getting her game in order."
Prosvirninia scored a team-best 23 goals in the Trojans’ first 11 games and also led the club in points with 27, shooting percentage at .548 and groundballs with 14 and ranked second in takeaways (14) and shots (42).
Impressive numbers for sure. But Prosvirninia's not one to brag about her personal success.
"I've been stepping up, I guess," she said. "I don't know, whatever I need to do to help get the win."
She’s also quick to point out that the Trojans have a number of girls that have proven an ability to put the ball in the net. Prosvirninia is one of five West Seneca East players with at least 10 goals on the season.
“We’re all scoring well,” Prosvirninia said. “Everyone’s been stepping up, really.”
She's also helping lead a new era of success for the Trojans. After West Seneca East lost 11 seniors to graduation from last year’s team, plus a few other players, it's been a year of transition for the program, which has just three seniors on the roster.
A 4-7 record isn't what West Seneca East is used to seeing in girls lacrosse. But the schedule is loaded with top-tier competition, including Class A powers Lancaster, Frontier, Williamsville North, Clarence and Orchard Park as well as five-time defending Class C champ Amherst.
"We're definitely getting better," Prosvirninia said. "We're getting used to playing with each other and knowing how to work well together."
And that progress will certainly lead to big things down the road. By no means are the Trojans writing off this season and they'll likely be a very tough out in the Class B Section VI tournament. But with just about everybody back next year, watch out for West Seneca East - and Prosvirninia will be the biggest reason for that. She's already a tri-captain this season and will likely be a focal point in 2013.
"I'm getting ready to lead the team next year," she said.
