Meet JV Coach Adelle Lever
2017: The high energy and fast moving JV athletes on the EGR Pioneer team may not agree on everything, but there’s one thing for sure that rings true through the roster: they LOVE being coached by the passionate former MSU Spartan player Adelle Lever.
“Coach Adelle is really passionate and intense but also very kind and generous. She teaches us all so much. She genuinely seems to love each one of us and despite a busy career (in the medical field) its clear that field hockey is a great source of joy for her and that we are a very high priority in her life. I like how closely she works with the other coaches, she knows the middle school players and every varsity player too. I think we are so lucky to learn from her but also have a team of 3 women that are a committed and tight-knit team and they all respect each other. I feel Coach Adelle has prepared us well as JV players and are ready to bring what we’ve learned to the varsity level we hope next fall. There’s a lot to look forward to next fall [at EGRFH] when you love your coach like we do.” Sophomore Kate
