Lia has received both an academic and athletic scholarship and decided Nyack was a great fit for her due to the beautiful environment and a great match with the team. As a Lourdes Warrior, we know she will fit in perfectly as a Nyack Warrior.
Currently, a senior, Lia, a Poughkeepsie resident, began her high school career on junior varsity and then moved to varsity for the remaining three years. In 2017 she was the Our Lady of Lourdes Rookie of the Year. In addition, while at Lourdes she also played varsity field hockey for four years.
While playing softball Lia has had a few moments that really stood out for her. At Lourdes during her sophomore year, she pitched a no-hitter against Ossining. In addition, during her sophomore year, the team was very competitive and they had a good run at sectionals. Lastly, during her travel season, while playing at the dome, her and her friend hit back to back home runs against a Division I pitcher.
Congratulations Lia on this next step in your athletic and academic career. We are proud to call you a Lourdean and a Warrior!
