LONG ISLAND PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Manhasset, Midfielder, Sr.
Whatever it took to win, Glynn did that.
She was named an All-Americanthe previous two years, not for gaudy numbers, but her quiet excellence in defense and ball movement. This season, circumstances altered her role. Manhasset needed more offense - Glynn delivered. The Indians needed help on the draw - she contributed. The team needed more on-field leadership - she provided it as a senior captain.
And when Manhasset desperately required a spark, struggling in the state final, Glynn responded with four goals and two assists, leading an 11-7 comeback over Victor to win the state Class B title. Glynn had 92 points (56 goals, 36 assists) in addition to 39 ground balls and 27 caused turnovers this season. As impressive was that 26 of her points came in the final four games, as the pressure and demands increased. Those accomplishments and more earned the midfielder Newsday’s Long Island Player of the Year.
Glynn now heads to Harvard, concluding her career as a champion with three All-Long Island and All-American selections.
