This season, Elise has a new last name and a new uniform number. After a couple seasons suiting up as No. 9, she dons the 23 jersey for Justin Vorster's Menace.
This season, we have spotlighted Menace players in our “7 Facts” series. Make sure you’re paying attention – there’s an “alternative fact” in each story.
Let’s get to know forward Elise White, who is in her third season with the Menace.
1. Elise was born in California in 1988, and she’s the oldest member of the Menace’s active roster.
2. She was runner-up for Iowa Gatorade Player of the Year in 2006 as a senior at Cedar Rapids Kennedy. She guided the Cougars to a state runner-up finish that year.
3. Elise went on to play four years at Iowa State University and concluded her collegiate career in third place on the Cyclones’ leaderboard in shots attempted (154) and second in shots on goal (70).
4. She has scored four goals – including two this season – for the Menace.
5. She might be known better as Elise Reid to Menace fans – she married Jaryd White on July 30, 2016.
6. Elise’s family members believe that a South Park character is based off one of her relatives.
7. She was inducted into the Iowa State Hall of Fame last year.
Did you catch this week’s alternative fact?
It was number 7. Elise is not a member of the Iowa State Hall of Fame, though she was inducted into Cedar Rapids Kennedy’s hall of fame last year.
…and, in case you were wondering, it is believed that a South Park character is based on Elise’s grandfather, Paul Harrison. He was a high-school band director for one of the show’s creators.
Thanks for your support of Elise and the Menace!
