Olivia Tuma commits to Cornell University
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.
