Congratulations to Blast 2018 Blue and Episcopal Academy midfielder, Olivia Tuma, on her commitment to the admissions process at Cornell University!
Cornell is located in Ithaca, NY and as a member of the Ivy League, the “Big Red” competes against Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Princeton, Penn, Brown, and Columbia.
“Cornell offers everything I was looking for in a school. I immediately connected with the players and the coaches. The high academic standard is something I knew I wanted as well as a strong lacrosse program. Coach Graap and her coaching staff have built an incredible program at Cornell and I am so excited to be a part of it!!”
Olivia has been a member of Philly Blast since the fall of 2011 and plays on 2018 Blue. “My favorite part about playing for Blast is my team. I absolutely love my team! The friendships that I have formed with them and the memories that we have made together are what make Blast so special to me.”
In addition to lacrosse, Olivia is a varsity member of Episcopal’s field hockey team (InterAc & PA Champs) and indoor track team (400m). She also participates in Key Club, assisting the Admissions Office by serving as a host for prospective students and a guide for parents, and volunteers her time at Cradles to Crayons.
