WAUSAU - Wausau East sophomore Cinneidi Comfort feels at home in the net for the Wausau Wolfpack lacrosse team.
"My lowest save percentage was 60%. I think that's a little bit above the average save percentage in the state for girls goalie," said Comfort.
Comfort had up to a 90% save percentage this season. Comfort is the top goalie in the state with 89 saves in only eight games.
"It feels really good because I've worked so hard for it, but it's any other day," said Comfort.
She isn't the only player on the Wolfpack that's playing with a top spot in mind.
Junior Natalia Robinson is second in the state for goals, with 36 goals in eight games. The top scorer has 40 goals in 12 games, so Robinson's on track to become number one.
Robinson started playing lacrosse in sixth grade when she lived in Rhode Island.
"It's so popular down on the east coast, I just fell in love with it. My coaches there were really great and they're great now too," said Robinson.
She moved to Tomahawk a few years later and was happy to see that there was a team for her, even if that meant a 45 minute drive to play.
"It's 100% worth it. Lacrosse is my sport, it's my passion," said Robinson.
Just like Comfort saying it's a regular day, Robinson also wants to downplay the spotlight and get the focus back to her teammates.
"This year, I've been trying to at least keep my goals per game average up to four to five goals per game. Usually after I score four goals in a game, then I try to settle down and get other girls with an assist," said Robinson.
That team-oriented mindset is paying off. The Wolfpack is 7-1 so far and the girls now play their home games at Thom Field for the first time ever.
"We're playing in the stadium, we're getting announced, we're being recognized by the schools, so that feels really good," said Comfort.
The sport of lacrosse is growing fast in Wausau and both Comfort and Robinson hope to see that continue.
