Outside the Eight: Women’s Lacrosse Podcast, Ep. 5

Outside the Eight: Women’s Lacrosse Podcast

Hello! Welcome to a brand new episode of Lacrosse All Stars’ podcast — Outside the Eight. This podcast focuses on women’s lacrosse while sharing stories and experiences of current and former players and coaches. Outside the Eight will grow the game, help others know the game and share stories that go beyond the field.

This week’s episode of Outside the Eight is Part 2 of 2

Hey Hey! Here it is, the second half of the conversation with the amazing, fearless, dare I say tenacious Trenna Hill.  If you haven’t listened to Part 1, I suggest you do so now! In Part Deux of this episode of Outside the Eight we dive into Trenna’s time playing at Syracuse, Native American culture, how women’s lacrosse fits into all of that and finally Trenna’s film debut!

On this episode we talk about:
1. Why going to Syracuse was important to her
2. Playing at Syracuse for the legendary Gary Gait
3. What’s next for Native American girls and sports
4. Education in the Native American culture
5. The intersectionality of identities Trenna has experienced
6. Why her Masters in Higher Education is so important
7. How she decided to uproot and head to California
8. How she ended up in a feature film about lacrosse!

Trenna grew up in upstate New York, played at Syracuse and graduating in 2014, played in the 2007 and 2013 World Cups with the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) National team. She recently completed her Master’s in High Education at Syracuse and packed her bags to move out west. Along with coaching with Defy Athletics and other club team’s when she has time, she is the head coach for both UCLA women’s lacrosse and Palos Verdes High School.
