The season might be six months away, but there is still plenty going on in the world of Section 1 girls lacrosse.
John Jay’s Hanna Bocklet Rye Country Day’s Julia Massaro and Yorktown’s Emily Concialdi and Bianca Dente all recently committed to Divison I programs.
Bocklet will head to the University of Denver in the fall of 2014. The senior attacker/midfielder will follow in her extended family’s footsteps in joining a Division I lacrosse team. Her cousins’ Mike Bocklet (Fairfield), Matt Bocklet (Fairfield/Johns Hopkins), Chris Bocklet (Virginia) and Casey Bocklet (Northwestern/Virginia) all played (Casey is a junior at UVA) Division I lacrosse with the latter three winning national championships. Bocklet isn’t the only Section 1 senior headed to Denver. Nyack’s midfielder Katherine Fischer is also committed to the Pioneers. Fellow Indian Helen Shabinsky is currently a sophomore defender on the team.
Staying out west, Concialdi has committed to the University of Southern California. The 2013 all-American led the Huskers in goals (50) in 2013 as she helped Yorktown to the top seed in Class B and the sectional final. The midfielder will join John Jay’s Kelsey Davey, who is a sophomore on the Trojans, in Los Angeles.
Massaro is also headed to the Golden State in a few years. The junior midfielder committed to Stanford after an impressive sophomore season that had her finish with 78 goals and 36 assists.
Dente, however, will be staying a bit closer to home. The Huskers’ goalie has committed to Marist college after earning all-section honors last spring as a junior. Dente had a breakout season in 2013 after taking over the goalkeeping duties from Katie Fredrick, who is a sophomore at Ohio State.
