The article presents information on an informal team lunch in the Norris University Center which Kristen Kjellman of the Northwestern women's lacrosse team attended. Eating lunch with Kristen is as fast-paced and action-packed as standing at midfield during one of their games. Multiple conversations are somehow heard over the din of laughter and no-look passes appear rehearsed as food is flung across the table. Kjellman is a driving force for the reigning women's lacrosse champions.
