Women’s Varsity Lacrosse Coach Lisa Christiansen is happy to report that one of her star players Casey O’Riordan, has committed to play for the Panthers at SUNY Purchase next fall. “Casey is one of our hardest working defenders, she’s got great one-on-one skills,” added Coach Christiansen.  “She’s an intelligent communicator and leader on the field and an integral part of the defense we will be using this year.”

In her earlier years at Whitman Casey enjoyed Soccer and Basketball, but this busy student decided to focus on her love of lacrosse between her other outside interests.   As a junior EMT at Huntington Community First Aid Squad, Casey not only dispatches ambulances but is Chief of their Explorer Post 215. She is also treasurer of the Walt Whitman robotics club. In summers past you could find Casey at St. Peter’s Vacation Bible School volunteering as a counselor. Casey will be attending SUNY Purchase as a Pre-Med Major with a Minor in Psychology. One day she hopes to attend medical school, and we have no doubt that this hard working and driven young lady will get there.

Congratulations Casey O'Riordan!
