All-American Achievement  thumbnail120836

Congratulations to Long Beach High School senior Lexie Correia on her All-American lacrosse achievement. This is the highest honor in high school girls lacrosse, and was bestowed upon only nine athletes in Nassau County and 18 on Long Island. 

Lexie is a two-time All-County player. She has started on the Long Beach Varsity Girls Lacrosse team since ninth grade and received All-County School Girls Team 1, Brine All Star Team and FLG Showcase All Star Team distinctions. She was named FLG Player of the Game five times and was chosen for the FLG Greatest of All Time Team. Additionally, she is a three-time Newsday Player and has twice been featured in Newsday’s Top 100 Players to Watch. 

This year, Lexie recorded 76 points – 54 goals and 22 assists. "Containing Correia" was the theme for the Verizon Fios games covered this season and that prior.   

Lexie’s skill and dedication does not end at lacrosse – she was also a two-year starter for the high school’s New York State Championship Volleyball team. Academically, she has consistently excelled as a scholar athlete since 2016 and has been on the high honor roll for the past two years. She is heading to Bryant University after graduation, where she will continue playing lacrosse at the Division I level. 

“Lexie is a phenomenal athlete and an explosive lacrosse midfielder,” said coach Rachel Ray. “She defines what a US Lacrosse All American is. Lexie has proven herself to be one of the best midfielders in Nassau County and on Long Island.”
