Senior goalie and Robert Morris commit Mia Tornetta, who starred at Great Valley the past three years, has transferred to Owen J. Roberts where she will play again for her father and former coach, Joe Tornetta.
Mia Tornetta was a Second-Team All-Ches-Mont League pick in 2016 for a Great Valley team that went 14-5. Tornetta also helped Team Pennsylvania repeat as Brine National Lacrosse champions and played for Team Philly in the Under Armour Underclassmen Games.
In 2015 Tornetta was a Second Team All-Phillylacrosse.com and a First-Team All-Ches-Mont selection who helped the Patriots to the Ches-Mont and District 1 titles. Tornetta also was the 2017 champion at the 2014 Goal Guardian National Championships.
Joe Tornetta was Great Valley’s coach for 24 years, his last season being Tornetta’s freshman year. After his contract was not renewed following the 2014 season he then took the job at Owen J. Roberts where he has led the Wildcats to consecutive Pioneer Athletic Conference titles and a berth in the District 1 finals in 2016.
Joe Tornetta said the family moved to the OJR district last week.
