Scripps Ranch High School Graduate Scores Big in Collegiate Lacrosse
Scripps Ranch native Stephanie Garrett is closing out an impressive career in collegiate lacrosse. In 2012, she graduated from Scripps Ranch High School, where she played varsity lacrosse, soccer, and field hockey. Wanting to stay in Southern California, she next moved to University of Redlands, where she quickly made herself known as a stand-out lacrosse player. She won the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Newcomer Year Award and All-SCIAC First-Team honors. She was then named SCIAC Offensive Athlete of the Year for her sophomore and junior years, becoming the first two-time winner in the program’s history.
Other accolades include Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association All-American honors her sophomore and junior years, and she’s in the top three in the conference of six career records. Stephanie is first in points and drawn controls, second in points per game and goals, and third in assists and groundballs.
Stephanie has been athletically competitive since childhood. She placed 17th out of over 100 runners in her first race – a children’s half-marathon – when she was around nine years old. She first tried lacrosse because her older brother, Sean, played. She wasn’t hooked until she started playing with older, more experienced players who gave her the challenge she needed. Stephanie’s parents, 92131 residents Jack and Shari Garrett, are proud of her accomplishments as an individual and team member.
