Amber Falcone soaring to new heights with North Carolina

At 5 feet 4, Amber Falcone doesn't look all that imposing for a lacrosse defender - until you watch what the UNC senior can do to an opponent. "I always say she's 5-foot-4 playing like 6-foot-4. She is really tough," said Courtney Vaughn, her high school coach. Falcone is blessed with every asset to be a top defensive player in NCAA Division I women's lacrosse. She's physically strong and has great speed, superb instincts and no off switch. (Baltimore Sun)
