Lauren Calamia has always loved to play sports ever since she was young. “I always loved to play sports, especially field hockey,” Calamia commented. Calamia is currently in her senior year and is studying elementary education and early childhood education. She enjoys coaching field hockey and softball in her spare time. She also enjoys skiing and spending time with her friends.

Calamia has played field hockey for many years. She said that playing field hockey has taught her many valuable lessons about herself and life. “Playing field hockey has been a great experience for me. I have met many great friends and have a lot of memories that I will cherish forever. I learned how to work really hard as well,” Calamia said. “It gave me an than extra push in life committed to the team and having the responsibility of school along with it.”

Calamia has many memories of playing field hockey over the last four years. One of her fondest memories and biggest accomplishments that she has experienced playing here at Cabrini happened in her junior year. The field hockey coach was out for the season battling cancer. The field hockey team took the season into their own hands and wanted to do well for their coach. They made it all the way to the PAC championship. “We all came together as a team. It was one of the most special teams I have ever played on,” Calamia said. Another special memory for Calamia occurred this past season when she was injured with a torn ACL. “I was thankful for how supportive everyone was and for helping me through such a difficult time in my life. It really meant a lot to me,” Calamia said.

After she finishes college Calamia plans to teach in elementary schools. She will continue playing field hockey for a local club. She also wishes to continue coaching hockey or softball.
