Recruit Profile
Coachable, natural leader & motivator, team player with strong lax IQ, multi-sport athlete, resilient, determined, decisive

Lacrosse was introduced to me in 4th grade, and I have loved it ever since. I have also played competitive soccer (travel & premier club) and basketball (travel - CYO). Last year as a freshman, I was given a spot on the Varsity Women's Soccer team and we were Co-League Champs. This past season (2018 fall), we were the 1st John Jay Varsity Women's Soccer team to win the Section 1 Class A Championship and advance to the Regional Championship. In the 2018 spring season, I was given a starting position (Midfield/Defense) on the Varsity Women's Lacrosse team as a freshman. We were Co-League Champs, won the New York State Section 1 Class B Championship, and Regional Championship. We moved onto States but fell in the State Semi-Final. I was awarded All-League. My teammates and I are dedicating ourselves to this off-season and are so psyched for what's to come in 2019 spring! Working hard, having strong mental toughness, and overall grit are major contributors to my play and life. I also take my schoolwork very seriously, and am proud of having earned the grades and recommendations necessary to be taking advanced honors courses that are offered. I have a very strong passion for this sport and will work tirelessly to earn respect in playing it.

Mia is one of the most talented, selfless, and impactful athletes that I’ve ever coached. I’m in awe of the combination of her skill level, strong physical presence, and mental maturity. She leads by example with her composed intensity, relentless work ethic, and passion for the game.

Has the work ethic, maturity, coachability and talent to play at a high level. Made varsity as a freshman and quickly became a starter. Has great size and physical strength. Confident, great field sense, can anticipate. Very strong on the draw and on D. Message directly for more information.

Mia has a tall field presence as a shooter, feeder, and defender. She is a natural leader who sets the tempo by reading whether it’s best to fast break or settle into a motion attack. Mia is a coachable, unselfish, poised player whose positive energy is contagious!
