During the Fall 2017 signing day, girl’s lacrosse team member, Adriana D’Amore signed her National Letter of Intent to play at University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

D’Amore will be heading to the Division 1 school to continue on in her tenth year of playing lacrosse.  The Retrievers went 11-6 in their 2017 season under coach Amy Slade.

LHS varsity assistant coach Georgie Porter said, “I just came in last year, and that’s all I needed to see from Adriana. She’s a spectacular player and a spectacular person. There’s nothing this girl can’t do on and off the lacrosse field. We are lucky we could coach her, see her play, see her grow up.”

D’Amore said that her biggest supporters have been her mother and father.

Paula D’Amore said, “I will definitely watch [her] games. I’m very happy that she is going to a local college, so I should be able to go to the majority of the games. It is going to be a lot of hard work, and I hope she can stick with it and do it and be the athlete I know she can be.”

In college, D’Amore plans to study either psychology or physical therapy. After college she hopes to make a career in an organization such as the FBI or CIA.

D’Amore said, “At UMBC there’s a designated person that helps you with your school work so hopefully that will help me a lot.”

D’Amore had another offer from a D2 school, and was being looked at by another D1 school but chose UMBC due to the close distance and environment created by the students and coaches there.

In her freshmen year, D’Amore did a clinic at UMBC, which both her and her mother said was a big deciding factor in choosing a school.

Although she signed during her senior year, D’Amore committed to UMBC back in her sophomore year after being invited back to the school to play lacrosse.

The UMBC girl’s lacrosse team is coached by Amy Slade, Alex Mundy, and Morgan Stephens.

Paula D’Amore said, “I am very excited about the strong female coaches at UMBC, who have won multiple awards in their own college careers and look forward for Adriana to be coached by them.”
