Congratulations to Blast 2017 and Bonner-Prendie midfielder, Paige Brady, on her commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Saint Francis University!
Saint Francis is located in Loretto, Pennsylvania and is a four-year coeducational Catholic liberal arts university. As a member of the Northeast Conference, the “Red Flash” compete against Bryant, Wagner, Robert Morris, Sacred Heart, Mount St. Mary’s, Central Connecticut and LIU Brooklyn.
“I chose Saint Francis because it felt right for me… athletically, academically and socially. I really like how close the community is and I absolutely love the coaches and players on the lacrosse team. It is definitely the perfect fit for me.”
Paige took her time through the entire recruiting process. She navigated numerous college visits and multiple offers over her high school career. After reflecting on the experience, she encourages younger players to consider how she handled her process. “Take your time and DO NOT RUSH. It took me until my senior year to find the perfect fit for me. I was really looking to make a 40 year decision… I was looking to find the right school that would impact me long after my 4 years of attendance.”
Paige has been a member of the Philly Blast 2017 Team since the Summer of 2013. In addition to competing for Blast, Paige is also involved in campus ministry, community service club, National Honors Society and has been be a member of her high school varsity lacrosse team since freshman year. Last season, she was awarded 1st Team All-Catholic and earned Honorable Mention All-Delco.
