Annie Eddy is fast. Fast enough to blow by other players as she attacks the net.
Standing at 5-foot-11, she has size to her advantage as well. Then there are her stick skills, considered among the best in Division 3 lacrosse.
Yet these are not the only reasons why Eddy’s teammates at Colby have followed her lead as they have marched through one of the program’s finest seasons in years, one that arrives at the next level this weekend in the NCAA Division 3 quarterfinals.
In short, she knows how to read people, and therefore she knows how to lead.
