Coach Isabelle Scane
Isabelle "Izzy" Scane is one of the finest lacrosse players in the history of Michigan high school lacrosse. A native of Clarkston, Isabelle played 4 years of varsity lacrosse at Cranbrook Kingswood in Bloomfield Hills. In addition to leading Cranbrook to its first ever MHSAA Division 2 State Final appearance as a freshman (and again as a sophomore), Isabelle finally helped Cranbrook win its first MHSAA State Championship in 2017 and again in 2018. She finished her high school career with 360 goals and 93 assists.
As a freshman at powerhouse Northwestern University, Isabelle made an immediate impact on her team's offense. On her way to grabbing 2nd Team All-American honors (the only freshman to make ANY of the 3 All-American teams), Isabelle was named a record-breaking Big 10 Freshman of the Week SEVEN times. It's no surprise that she was named the Big 10 Freshman of the Year. Isabelle was a major reason Northwestern made it all the way to the NCAA semi-finals (where she posted 5 goals against eventual National Champion Maryland). She finished her freshman campaign with 62 goals and 18 assists.
The next chapter in Isabelle's storied career saw her competing for the US at the World U19 Women's Lacrosse Championships in Peterborough, Canada in August, 2019. Once again, Isabelle was a dominant force on a dominant team. The US swept the competition on their way to a Gold Medal win over Canada. Isabelle was named the Player of the Match in the Gold Medal game in addition to being named to the All-World team.
Monarch is truly fortunate to have Isabelle as a coach!
