Freshman Meredith Pia is finding her way on the lacrosse field.

Pia, who is from Ladenburg, Pa., graduated from Kennett High School, where she played on the women’s lacrosse team all four years. Pia, who plays the positions of attack wing and center, was the only freshman to play on varsity at Kennett and one of only two sophomores who played her second year.

Pia’s interest in lacrosse started while she was attending Upper Country Day School, where she was required to play three sports each year. Pia split her time between field hockey, ice hockey and lacrosse while at Country Day. She continued to play ice hockey as well as lacrosse throughout her high school years.

She received the Delaware Valley and SCCL first team award consistently while playing lacrosse at Kennett.

While looking for a college Pia knew she wanted to play lacrosse, “No matter where I went, I had to play; if I didn’t I wouldn’t be able to keep myself occupied outside of school.” She narrowed her schools down to four choices and chose Cabrini because of its championship consistency in women’s lacrosse, as well as Cabrini’s close proximity to her home.

Pia started practicing with the team a few weeks ago and has noticed the difference between high school and college lacrosse, “It’s nothing like high school, there were cliques here and there; everyone on this team is so friendly.”

Pia will be traveling with the rest of the team to St. Petersburg, Fla., over spring break to fine tune its skills in a training camp. The team will return home to face its season head on.
