Southern New Hampshire University women’s lacrosse head coach Carissa Medeiros wanted to touch base with Noelle Lambert (Londonderry, N.H.), one of her former players at UMass Lowell, and ask her a question, so she called.
Lambert didn’t pick up.
It was unusual for her not to answer, so Medeiros texted her, thinking to herself that Lambert always answers her texts; still, nothing. The coach figured that her former player was busy training for an upcoming track event.
She tried reaching out a week later but still didn’t get a reply. It wouldn’t be for another couple weeks later that Madeiros would finally get a response via text.
