Hometown Hero: Veta Mayer

This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is Wheeler’s Veta Mayer.

The reigning U.S. Lacrosse All-American, Mayer has tallied 34 goals and 10 assists, helping the Warriors move into a tie for second place in Division I.

The two-time first-team All-Stater’s success has earned her the opportunity to play at Dartmouth College next spring. The Big Green have made 14 NCAA appearances in 44 varsity seasons.
