PNC Lacrosse Spotlight: Roland Park Country School Junior Attacker Cameron McGee

May 4, 2016
Cameron McGee is a multisport athlete for the Roland Park Country School Reds; however, lacrosse is her specialty. The junior is one of the fiercest attackers in the region, and she has helped Roland Park maintain its long tradition of being one of the top teams in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. The Reds are chasing the nation's top-ranked team, McDonogh, for the conference title again this season. A stellar student, McGee has committed to Georgetown, where she will play for head coach Ricky Fried, a graduate of UMBC, where he was an All-American midfielder.
 
PressBox: What types of goals did you set entering the season? Have you been able to meet those goals?

Cameron McGee: I went into this season knowing it was important for me to uphold the same intensity level, day in and day out, that the upperclassmen had always held for me. After recently watching an Inky Johnson motivational video, I took away that it's about the process, not necessarily the outcome. So entering the season, I knew my goal was to constantly work hard from start to finish. Coach [Kim] McNemar has a system and a process, and as my teammates and I buy into the system and learn the process, we improve each week, exceeding the goals I had in mind for our season. 
 
PB: What areas are you still looking to improve?

CM: I am still looking to improve my predictability when I dodge and drive. My coaches push me to drive from new areas around the 12-meter in practice, so I am looking to improve and execute the new habits I've developed.
 
PB: How has the team gotten steadily better each game?

CM: Each game, we continue to work as a unit, offensively and defensively. When Coach McNemar asks us to adjust a play or run a new set, we always execute it. I really think our communication has gotten better, steadily improving our game.
 
PB: What went into your decision to committing early to Georgetown? How does Roland Park prepare you for college academically and athletically?

CM: Georgetown was my first choice because [of] academics, proximity and Coach Fried. The campus was the perfect size with the perfect surroundings. It felt right after visiting twice. RPCS has prepared me academically, athletically and socially. I am held accountable for balancing schoolwork and maintaining good grades with athletics each season.
 
PB: How much lacrosse did you play in the offseason, and how do you stay motivated?

CM: Playing three seasons of sports is important to me. After summer league, I put my stick down, only playing in the backyard with my brother, until winter workouts.
