This offseason, the Saint Joseph's women's lacrosse program will individually introduce its 13 newest Hawks. With the departure of nine letterwinners, including a trio of starters, from last year’s team, this incoming group comprised of six attackers, four midfielders, two defenders, and a goalkeeper will add to a Hawks squad that is coming off of a program-record, 11-win season, which was capped by a run at the 2017 Atlantic 10 Championship Tournament, and will play under the direction of fourth-year head coach Alex Kahoe.

Explain who or what most influenced you to attend SJU:
“The community; everyone was very welcoming and I felt like I was at home as soon as I stepped on campus. The academics fit with my ability and my major was an available option. The lacrosse team was awesome and made SJU feel even more like home. The team was so nice and welcoming and seemed so close together, I couldn't wait to be a part of the team! Also, they played music a lot, which was the cherry on top for me.”
