MIKAELA RIX
Nassau Player of the Year

Garden City, Midfielder, Sr.
Rix is widely regarded as a top-five high school player in the country (ESPN ranked her third), and her resume warrants it. She is a two-time All-American, member of the under-19 national team and the leader of a Garden City squad coming off its sixth consecutive Class B state title and ranked second in the nation. She excelled at both ends of the field and had 75 points (54 goals). The Trojans dominance is what kept Rixs numbers from being even loftier as she often sat late in blowout games. Shell play at Boston College.
