Frisoli excited about progress of women’s lacrosse
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Liz Frisoli knows the importance of networking.
It's been a key part of her job since being hired at Huntingdon last fall. Frisoli has made contacts across the nation as she prepares to field Huntingdon's first women's lacrosse program.
The Lady Hawks will play their first game at Samford Stadium on Feb. 16 against Agnes Scott.
"I'm optimistic. The fact that 75 percent of our recruits have committed after visiting the campus has strengthened my confidence," Frisoli said. "It's challenging to build a team from scratch, but the girls that have already committed have made it very rewarding."
As of May, Frisoli has commitments from 11 states for the first Huntingdon women's lacrosse team. But she isn't slowing down for the summer.
Frisoli plans to spend the summer recruiting and visiting six summer tournaments and at least four camps. She will also be working as a head pro at a Nike Sports Camp near Boston in late July and early August.
"I've spent the past nine months promoting Huntingdon lacrosse in Alabama and around the country," Frisoli said. "This is a way to get the Huntingdon name out there a little more in the northeast."
