The Mandarin Lady Mustangs are finishing out their 9th season as a program in Duval county, under 2nd year Head Coach Meghan Braun (5th season at Mandarin), and two senior captains: Laurel Dunathan and Madyson Broom. Coach Braun took over as Head Coach two seasons ago, with the vision of grooming and developing a championship team. Braun brings over 12 years of coaching experience from the high school and NCAA levels. During her coaching career she has developed competitive teams and produced multiple high school Academic-All Americans, National Team selectees, and collegiate level athletes. As an accomplished NCAA multi-sport athlete and current international level player, Braun brings exposure to the sport of women’s lacrosse that the program has not experienced before. She sees the potential and growth that this team possesses to become a powerhouse in North Florida.
With 5 seniors on the team and a large class of returning players, Braun strategically poised the Mustangs for a challenging season. This season has proven to be one of growth and adversity, as it has been a first with the program playing against multiple cross-county, high-level, and out of state teams. Regardless of the challenges in competition, the Mustangs have battled for every ground ball, goal, and every win. As the regular season is coming to an end, Mandarin is ready to leave it all out on the field for their district playoff, and strive to find the fire within themselves to finish strong.
Good luck in your district playoffs Mustangs!
