College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

Varsity Lacrosse

OVERVIEW

The Holton-Arms lacrosse captains and four year varsity members including Virginia Asher ’19, Stephanie Hong ’19, Maddie McCormick ’19 and Hadley Nolan ‘19 lead a strong team of thirteen returning members. They welcome three new members who have already made a strong impact on the team, including Chloe Dionisio ’22, Jules Freeman ’22 and Serena Hong ’22.

The team will lean on the small roster of 16 members to help push each other and achieve our goals. With a US Lacrosse National Pre-Season Ranking of 17th in country, we know that we will need to preform to continue to stay in the national conversation. We are excited to play a full schedule, including top competition and other nationally ranked opponents. We look to improve on last year’s successes and continue to push the program in many ways.

Be sure to keep tabs on our alumnae playing in college. Playing at the Division III level, Catie Mulligan ’16 is at Denison College, and Christine Padalino ’18 is at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Playing at the Division I level, Olivia Lee ’15 is in her final year captioning the Brown University team, Annelise Kotz ’17 is playing at Colgate, Taylor Lawrence ‘18 is playing at Stanford and Kaitlyn Pham ’18 is playing at Johns Hopkins University.
