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.

A three-time All-Ches-Mont Second Team selection and three-time DLN pick, which included First Team honors as a senior, Staska tallied 153 career goals at Bishop Shanahan High School. She capped off a four-year career with 57 goals, 15 assists, 45 draw controls, and 39 ground balls as a senior captain en route to being named the squad’s Most Valuable Player. Staska led Bishop Shanahan to 61 wins over four seasons and was named to the Philly National Team as a sophomore. The incoming midfielder out of West Chester, Pennsylvania played club lacrosse for P.A. Express Orange Team. A two-sport athlete at Bishop Shanahan, Staska also lettered in field hockey and played club hockey for the WC Eagles. Lacrosse runs in the family as Staska’s mother, Maureen, played at Kutztown University and sister, Maddie, plays at West Chester University.
