Piotrowicz, who scored 60 goals last year and earned first-team All-Suburban One American Conference honors, liked JMU’s nursing program and academic support system.
“I have wanted to go into nursing since sixth or seventh grade and they have a really strong nursing program,” said Piotrowicz, an Academic All-American choice last year. “I have a couple friends that go there and they love it.
“I also like the level of play, it’s a good fit for me. And I like their whole academic process with athletics. They keep up on the academics and the coaching staff is great.”
Piotrowicz said the view in Harrisonburg, Va. is idyllic. “It’s lined with mountains.” she said.
Piotrowicz, who has lettered every season in field hockey and basketball as well as lacrosse, has enjoyed playing different sports.
“I love playing three sports,” she said. “I think that’s helped me with my leadership.”
Piotrowicz believes her role as a leader may increase for this year’s youthful PW team.
“We’re real young this year, there are a lot of freshmen coming in,” she said. “We’re not going to be all amazing, but we’ll get our wins.
“I will try to keep things positive. That’s rally important and that’s what I needed when I was a freshman. If I can bring that, I’ll be doing my job.”
