The Magic and PRYSC lost a member of their soccer family on May 15th; Andrea Lee. Andrea played her recreational years for the PRYSC and played for the Magic for their first two years. She also played 4 years of High School soccer at PHS.
She was a amazing influence on the Magic during her two years with the team. She was a demanding player that made all of her teammates better. She led the team in their first of 5 league championships, their first 1st place tournament finish, and two 2nd place and a 3rd place finish.
She played striker and attacking midfield with all that the names striker and attacker implies. She never let down always giving it all she had. In her second season with the Magic she scored 18 of the 36 goals that they scored that year in league play; which was their first league championship.
She always had a ready smile and a quick wit. She grasped concepts extremely fast. She played four years of High school soccer for PHS under Barry Avakian and Ron Wall. While at HS she exemplified the same traits as she did for the Magic, scoring often and playing hard.
Her past teammates will sorely miss her as will her current teammates on the Magic; as they are well aware of her contributions to the legacy of the team.
Good Bye Andrea! May you always find the pitch smooth and fast.
