Babylon High School senior attacker Devyn Antolini signed a National Letter of Intent on November 15th to play lacrosse at Marquette University.
A standout multi-sport athlete at Babylon, Antolini notched at least one goal or assist in each of the Lady Panthers’ 17 lacrosse games last season, and she is expected to make an immediate impact for Marquette’s offense when she joins the team next year.
Antolini’s superb field vision and prowess on offense helped guide the Lady Panthers to the Suffolk Class C semifinals last year, as she tallied a team-high in points on five separate occasions. She is also an exceptional talent on the basketball court.
Antolini is excited to join a Marquette Golden Eagles women’s lacrosse team that is heading into its first regular season in program history. Marquette is using its inaugural season to see how it stacks up against top-level national competition, and the team is slated to join the Big East Conference full-time in 2014.
“It’s a new program that has a great coaching staff,” Antolini said on her decision to sign with Marquette. “I’m very excited to play at the next level. I also decided to attend Marquette because I loved the campus and its superb academic offerings.”
