♦ Field or box?: Field

♦ Coach Paul Hennelly’s take: “It’s easy for people to underestimate Maria because she’s not physically imposing and has a quiet, unassuming air about her but she performs her best against the toughest competition. Since her first days as a freshman on Varsity she’s produced a lot of “Wow” moments in practice that translated to big plays in games. She was selected All County as a freshman but her big breakout was last year as a sophomore in our first ever playoff run. She had always come through for us but she showed another level playing in May against the best in the state. She loves to compete. She’s a great teammate and terrific student (who I was lucky to teach) and we’re counting on her to be a more vocal leader for our team this year. She won’t let us down.”

She had essentially one full varsity year, but she also plays high-level club (lacrosse) and travel. … She probably started six or seven games her freshman year. She started all of them last year. And I think she’s still getting better. She continues to get better, so I think she’s still on her way up. I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do.”
