This week, we take a look at 4th year vet Stephanie as our Buffalo Bandette of The Week. A co-captain this season, she's not the type of gal to rest on past accomplishments, though she's still extremely, and justifiably, proud of the NLL Girl of the Year award she won her rookie season. Now, in addition to her role on the Bandettes and working towards becoming every student's favorite history teacher, she's dabbling in the modeling world with 26Shirts, helping raise money for families in need. She's a perfect choice for the job because even her mother has a hard time saying no to that face. She's more than her looks though as she's about as genuine and down-to-earth as can be and easy to get along with. She says her biggest strength is her sense of humor but her sense of responsibility is up there as well. She's great at taking care of her younger siblings and is now showing her mettle as a leader on the Bandettes, something she was perhaps groomed for as she spent her formative years learning dance and cheerleading from Bandettes alums Meghan and Beth, respectively.

Before the game, the Bandettes were stationed along the concourse signing their posters for the fans. Shown smiling for a photo are Stephanie, MaKenzie, and Abby.

From the Jills comes a photo from the 2008 squad. SoHo Bar was the spot to be on a late September evening as the Jills held a fundraiser to help raise funds for their 2009 Calendar trip. Pizzas and wings were donated to the cause along with plenty to drink. Out front to greet fans as they came in are Lisa, Anna, Ali, and Katherine.
