Recruit Profile
Fast, with a great stick and powerful shot. Fierce defender with a nose for the ball. Coachable, team-first player.

Scholar-Athlete. That is how the Dean of students responded when asked to describe me. Besides the ocean and my family, lacrosse is my greatest love. When I was 12 my babysitter took to me the park and put a lacrosse stick in my hands, and I haven't looked back since. My strengths as a player include my athleticism, stick skills, and field awareness. I may not have a lacrosse program at my school (I’m changing that), but I do everything in my power to replicate the practice my teammates get in the spring. I play a lot of wall ball (NYC has a lot of walls!), I do lacrosse-specific strength and conditioning with my club and, individually, and I watch game film to improve my lax IQ and prepare for the summer club season. I also try and stay active. I’ve been a three-sport award-winning varsity athlete since freshman year. I take school as seriously as my game. I have taken/will take every advanced class offered at my school while maintaining an A average. This year my class schedule includes Advanced Mandarin (Literature and History), Advanced Math, and Advanced Chemistry. I like to be challenged. I participate in many clubs including debate and environmental awareness, and I am starting a tutoring center at my school. I helped establish a middle school lacrosse team last year where I was the student coach for the team and even designed the uniforms, and this year I will be the vice president of the athletic council. Additionally, I volunteer tutor with Harlem Lacrosse two days a week, with plans to connect my high school tutoring center with the Harlem lacrosse program.

Tara is the true definition of an athlete excelling in multiple sports. As her track coach at Avenues I have seen her development over the past 2 years and it has been exponential. She is such a fast learner, hard worker and talented young lady. She has a bright future.

Tara is an extremely hard working individual, always going the extra mile to bring her game to the next level. She has a fast first step and uses her speed all over the field. She is very coachable and has been a pleasure to work with.
