All three have excelled in gymnastics and will be moving on to compete at the Division I level next fall. Gymnastics is such a time consuming, demanding sport and these three athletes have managed to train and compete at such a high level, all while balancing our rigorous academics here at Seton. I could not be more proud of them! Congratulations!”

Lacrosse

Rebecca Ferrina, daughter of  Paige Buker and Brian Ferrina, of Hyattsville, will attend NCAA Division I Gardner-Webb University, North Carolina, to play lacrosse. 

From Head Varsity Lacrosse coach Bridget Looney-Quinn:

“Rebecca is an attacker for us and has probably the best stick skills on our team. She has been with us since her Freshman year making an immediate impact on the attacking side of the ball and I expect we will see an even greater impact this season. We are excited to see her continue to play in college at Gardner-Webb. I think she will see her game grow there. She is a solid student in the classroom that I know will continue throughout college.” 

Daia Hansford, daughter of Berlynn and Dextre Hansford, of Bowie, will attend NCAA Division I University of Massachusetts-Lowell.

From Head Varsity Lacrosse coach Bridget Looney-Quinn:

“Daia Has been on the team since her freshman year. She has worked really hard in the weight room and on the field to get her Lacrosse game where it is today. She plays defense and midfield for us. She is our top defender and has made her presence known when playing opponents. She’s a solid 1v1 defender and doesn’t mind taking the ball up the field and scoring every now and then! She’s an excellent student with ambition and probably one of the most underrated players. We wish her well at UMass Lowell where she will be playing for my old coach, Lisa Miller! Excited to see what she will do with college at the next level!” 

Kyndall Jackson, daughter of Ria and Scott Jackson, of Bowie, will attend NCAA Division I Hofstra University, New York, to play lacrosse. 

From Head Varsity Lacrosse coach Bridget Looney-Quinn:

“Kyndall is the model definition of ‘student-athlete.’ She pushes herself academically and in athletics. She also plays soccer, where she helped get her team to the WCAC championship last year. Kyndall comes from a long line of great role models: her two older siblings, McKenzie, Seton '16 (Current Senior playing lacrosse at Embry-Riddle) and brother, Caleb, DeMatha '19 (Current Sophomore playing soccer at UMBC). She is one of our captains that leads not just by example, but also with her passion and love of the game.”

Emily McGraw, daughter of Carrie and Sean McGraw, of Arnold, will attend NCAA Division I Gardner-Webb University, North Carolina, to play lacrosse. 

“Emily, a Junior transfer, will be an impact player for us, as well as for Gardner-Webb. She plays defense and has seen her game grow since joining our squad. She is also a rockstar in the classroom! She is dedicated to getting better each day and we couldn't be happier for her to continue to play at the next level!”

Grace Golatt, daughter of Bridgette and Dion Golatt, of Upper Marlboro, will attend Division II University of Virginia-Wise, to play lacrosse.

From Head Varsity Lacrosse coach Bridget Looney-Quinn:

“Grace, a Sophomore transfer, is a remarkable student-athlete who has really grown over the years and has really started to come into her own. She has a drive that is unstoppable once she gets going. Grace works hard in the classroom, weight room and on the field. We couldn't be happier for her and are looking forward to watching her game grow at the next level!”

Colin Horton, daughter of Monica and Ben Horton, of University Park, will attend Division III St. Mary’s College of Maryland, to play lacrosse.

From Head Varsity Lacrosse coach Bridget Looney-Quinn:

“Colin has grown physically and mentally in her game. She is also a stellar student in the classroom. She is one of our team captains and has been for the past two years. She leads by example and comes to practice every day to work hard and not just to personally improve, but makes her teammates better, as well.”
 
Field Hockey/Lacrosse

Courtney Crawford, daughter of Tynea Crawford, of Washington, DC, will continue her Field Hockey and Lacrosse career at NCAA Division III Eastern Mennonite University.

From Field Hockey Coach Dana Cunningham:

“Courtney has grown so much as a leader and player since she began playing field hockey her freshman year. She is the heart of the team, and a steady force on and off the field. Players and coaches look to her for true leadership and grit. She will be an asset at EMU next year, and we are glad to have had our rising players be inspired by her attitude and determination.”

From Head Varsity Lacrosse coach Bridget Looney-Quinn:

“Courtney is a remarkable student-athlete. She came to Seton Lacrosse her freshman year having never played. I had the privilege of coaching her older sister, Ayana Crawford who is now at Bethany College playing lacrosse. I am glad that when Courtney came to Seton she didn't hesitate to try out for the team. She made it and has been working tirelessly from day one to get to where she is today. She has always been willing to put in the work but also brings a sense of community and connectedness to our team. She is going to be a strong defender for us this year who will see runs in the midfield, as well. We are very excited for Courtney to join the EMU family and can't wait to see where her journey takes her after Seton!”

The Covid-19 pandemic impacted our spring athletics season schedule for in-person competition, but not for Coach Looney-Quinn, who continued to connect with her players virtually and in safe, small group training sessions. She took the opportunity to write the following:

“This class is incredible in the sense that they are not just good lacrosse players, but also exceptional students! This Senior class, as a whole, is remarkable with their grit, determination, and example. Since their Freshman year, they have helped raise the bar for this program. They look out for one another and they encourage each other along with their other teammates to be the best version of themselves. To have an entire Senior class be dedicated not just to lacrosse, but also to academics, and to spreading the spirit of Seton, is contagious and I think is truly felt throughout the School community. They have a joy that radiates individually and bursts when they are working together. I will be cherishing every moment I have left working with these young women.”
