Athlete of the Week: Kathleen Conese

The Scoop:
Conese is a junior attacker on the women’s lacrosse team. This Liverpool, N.Y. native has been a colossal contributor to the successful lacrosse team throughout her career. Last year, Conese earned second team honors. After starting all 18 games this season and leading the team in goals, Conese has made great progress over the last year. Conese was unanimously selected for first team honors. She was the only attacker to gain this unanimous recognition. Conese now has 39 goals for the season and 52 points. She has a high of 13 assists and has made up for her turnovers with the amount of turnovers she has caused her opponents to make. On three separate occasions this season she has scored a career high of four goals in a single game. She is tied on the team for most ground balls and is one of the leaders among attackers in the conference in forced turnovers. Recently, Conese was named the Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Year for Women’s Lacrosse. An award that is one of, the most prestigious awards a player can receive. With one season to go for this powerhouse player, the sky is the limit.


How she got started:
“I started playing for a BULL league when I was in fourth grade.  A majority of my neighbors and friends from school were involved so I jumped on the bandwagon.”


Major and future plans:
Conese is a math major, with a concentration in education. In the future, she hopes to be a kindergarten teacher.


What made her decide to be an attacker:
“Basically in high school my coach just told me that was where I was going to play, and so it just stuck I guess. Also, defense seems really complicated.”


Person/people who have had the greatest impact on Conese:
“My high school coach probably had the biggest impact on me throughout lacrosse because of how much she loved the sport, she made it fun all

throughout high school and still follows all of her players throughout their  college careers.


Goals she has reached and what she hopes to achieve:
“As a team, one of big goals was to finally win the NE-10 tournament which we accomplished this past weekend, and next we really hope to be successful in the NCAA tournament!”


Advice to other players:
“Don’t take anything for granted, cherish your teammates and coaches because those are the relationships that will stay with you for the rest of your life.


Most memorable moment as a Le Moyne Dolphin:
“My most memorable moment thus far is traveling to Kentucky for the NCAA’s last year.  Although our outcome on the field wasn’t what we had hoped for, it was an unforgettable experience to see Louisville and visit the stadium where the Kentucky Derby is held.”


Pregame ritual:
“The only thing pregame ritual I have even though its really unrelated to lacrosse is that I have to paint my nails before every game!”


Reaction to her newest individual award, NE-10 Player of the Year:
“I was very surprised when my coach called to tell me. At first, I asked her if she was calling the right person. It is truly an honor to receive the award, but I honestly think it could have gone to about five other girls on my team alone.  I think that is why we are finding so much success this year, because there are so many girls who can lead the team on any given day.”
