Mt. Sinai rising senior goalie Marina Venezia has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Lehigh University.
Venezia led Mt. Sinai led the Mustangs to the Class C state finals and a 14-5 overall record.
Venezia, who plays club lacrosse for the Long Island Yellow Jackets, has been on the superintendent’s list, is a member of the National Honor Society, and has received the scholar athlete award. She plans to major in Chemical Engineering at Lehigh.
“I chose Lehigh because it was a good academic school and that was really important to me,” said Venezia.
“My visit went really well. I really liked the coaches and all of the girls too. I had met a few of them when I went for a 7 V 7 scrimmage, and I met a few more when I went back up for another clinic.”
Lehigh made it to the Patriot League semifinals in 2011, but lost to Navy. Overall the Mountain Hawks were 10-7.
