Ali Carey ’14
Hometown: Clarksville, Md.
Shots on Goal: 7/7
Ground Balls: 2
In her first ever college lacrosse game, attack Ali Carey ’14 gave Bison fans a lot to be excited about, posting impressive stats against St. Bonaventure. She scored five goals, producing half of her team’s scoring and showing great efficiency in shooting. All seven of her shots were on goal.
More impressive is that Carey was playing in her very first college game.
“Playing my first college lacrosse game was one of the most exciting experiences I have had,” she said.
Of course, some nerves came with the game, but Carey did a great job handling them.
“I just focused on catching the first ball, and everything else just happened,” she said. “Our upperclassmen were so great at keeping us composed and reassuring us that even though we are a young team we are a good one.”
Even as a young star, she remains modest.
“Overall, I think the reason I played well was the confidence my team gave me to go to goal and that I got lucky and had a good shooting day,” she said.
If Carey continues to play at this level throughout the rest of her career as a Bison, she will significantly enhance the team’s chance of becoming a force in the Patriot League.
