Board of Directors 2023-2024

 

Meet Our Board Members

Co-Presidents - George Brewster and Jamie Willis

George has been very active in Seattle Youth Lacrosse for the last 12 years (save for 2 when his family was in Spain). He helped create the Magnolia United Wee Tykes Program that introduced the game to parents and kids in kindergarten through second grade so they could play youth lacrosse with some experience. He coached and served on the board of Magnolia United / Props Lacrosse. He also was the assistant varsity coach at Lakeside School for two seasons. He grew up back East and played at Connecticut College a very long time ago now. He loves the game and is thrilled to help out on the Board however he can so others can learn and love the game as he does.

Jamie has been active with Lacrosse in Seattle for the last 6 years helping out with coaches in the Props program where his son, Owen, learned the game. This is his first year on the Ballard Lacrosse Board and excited to contribute where he can. He has been involved in coaching & supporting hockey, baseball, soccer, softball & lacrosse with his 2 children in the past and is happiest at one of those venues watching his and others play and learn the games. Away from the fields & rinks you can find him hiking, kayaking, spending time with his family, at music concerts or playing Adult League Hockey.

Treasurer - Mark Querry

 

  Secretary/Internal Communications - Mi-La Delaney 

Mi-La is learning more about the intricacies of the great sport of LAX as her son participates more in the game.  He has been involved since Wee Tykes @ Props.  The community of Ballard LAX is an amazing set of folks and she is happy to be a part of.  Outside of lacrosse, you will find Mi-La on the ice playing rec hockey or enjoying beverages with her friends and family when they are in town.

 

 

Fundraising - Natalie Nordfors, Sara Willy, Wendy Gaylord

 

Natalie was first introduced to lacrosse when her son Grant (now a Junior) was a 2nd grade “bobble head” playing for Props Lacrosse.  Being a Seattle native, there wasn’t much lacrosse over here on the West Coast when she was growing up.  She has enjoyed the experience, the sport and community so much that she was inspired to join the BHS Lax board.  Her main goal is to help create a fun, supportive, positive community experience for the players and their families. In her free time she collects vintage glassware, enjoys a locally brewed IPA, long walks at Discovery with her husband and family dog and cooking for family, friends and really anybody!

 

Wendy is new to the exciting world of Lacrosse as her son, Henry, started playing as a freshman at Ballard. They have been a football family and have found that Lacrosse is a great addition. The team, coaches and families are a great community to be a part of! Away from high school sports Wendy spends her free time running, gardening, paddle boarding and being with family and friends.
