Mint Hill is home to two talented, high-scoring lacrosse players–and they’re sisters. Austin and Cassie Brown have been playing sports their whole lives. You may have seen them at the Mint Hill Athletic Association fields. But basketball, baseball, and field hockey did not catch them like lacrosse did.
Introduced to lacrosse by their aunt, Austin and Cassie have been playing the sport since middle school. Both girls are on the Providence Day varsity team and are two of the top scorers, accounting for 56 percent of the team’s goals.
They have been practicing together since they were young, which has proven to be very beneficial.

“I can throw passes to Cassie that I know no one else can catch,” added Austin.
The Providence Day team is ranked fourth in the state.
