Maddie Soukup may be new to the Puget Sound campus and to Logger lacrosse, but that doesn't mean she hasn't assimilated well to the team. "Being a lacrosse player at Puget Sound means being a part of the best team on campus. I get to work hard with my friends playing the best sport there is. I'm proud to be apart of Logger lacrosse and I am excited to show people what we can do this season. Lacrosse has given me the opportunity to compete and this has made my time here at Puget Sound a lot of fun!"
