Buffs Bolster Roster With Addition of Cater, A Team IMPACT Recruit
BOULDER — Colorado lacrosse has partnered with Team IMPACT to bring 14-year-old Amy Cater into the program, a process that has been made official with Cater's signing of a National Letter of Intent Sunday morning at the CUEC.
Cater (Loveland, Colo.) was paired with the Buffaloes through Team IMPACT. She embodies empathy, camaraderie, resilience and boldness, four values that are at the core of Team IMPACT and they define what it means to be a champion.
The CU lacrosse team is always in pursuit of winning championships, both on the conference and national levels. Cater is passionate about sports, and she brightens up any room she walks into with her positive energy and amazing personality. Together, Cater and the CU lacrosse team are a perfect match.
"We are so excited to welcome Amy officially to the team," assistant coach Nicole Levy said. "She brings so much positive energy and is an inspiration to us all."
Team IMPACT provides a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for a child and their family to connect with a college athletic team with the goal of filling the void left when traditional support systems are lacking for children living with a chronic or life-threatening illness. Since 2011, Team IMPACT has matched more than 1,200 children with more than 450 colleges and universities in 46 states, reaching over 35,000 participating student-athletes. Throughout this journey, the child gains strength, camaraderie, and support, while the student-athletes experience lessons of courage, resiliency, and perspective they can't learn in a classroom.
