Congratulations are in order for Gyeho Thomas, an administrative assistant to Dr. Bernice Downey and part of the Indigenous Health Initiative team, Faculty of Health Sciences.
Ms. Thomas is a member of the Haudenosaunee Nationals, a lacrosse team that took the championship game 16-6 over Puerto Rico Lacrosse on November 17 in Auburndale, Florida.
Competitors for the inaugural Pan American Lacrosse Association (PALA) Women’s Lacrosse World Qualifiers included Argentina, Colombia, the Haudenosaunee, Jamaica, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
The team now holds bragging rights as the “best women’s field lacrosse team on this side of the world.”
This win also qualifies the team for the World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship in July 2021.
We are all so proud of her and her team’s accomplishment!
