From Press Release
Saint Joseph’s head coach Alex Kahoe has announced the addition of goalkeeper Liz O’Sullivan (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan), a graduate transfer from the University of Notre Dame, to the 2017 Saint Joseph’s women’s lacrosse roster.
O’Sullivan will graduate from the University of Notre Dame after just three and a half years with her degree in accounting this December and will begin work on her Master of Business Administration degree from Saint Joseph’s University this upcoming January. She will take the field with the Hawks this spring and will have one remaining year of eligibility following the 2017 season.
“We are thrilled that Liz O’Sullivan is joining our team on Hawk Hill,” said Kahoe. “Liz was a highly touted goalkeeper coming out of high school and has proven herself able to make big stops in big games. Her experience with and exposure to high-level lacrosse will strengthen our squad this year. Our team is excited to welcome Liz, and we are looking forward to her stepping in and making an immediate impact as we work toward our spring season.”
O’Sullivan redshirted the 2016 season at Notre Dame. As a sophomore in 2015, she made all 20 starts in goal en route to a 9.68 goals against average and .412 save percentage to lead the Fighting Irish to an 11-9 record. As a freshman in 2014, O’Sullivan made five starts in 14 total appearances, going 3-4 with a 10.08 goals against average and .389 save percentage.
The incoming goalkeeper attended New Canaan High School (’13) in New Canaan, Connecticut, where she finished her four-year career with a 76-14 record to go with three state championships. ESPN ranked O’Sullivan the No. 2 goalkeeper recruit in 2013.
O’Sullivan will join a Saint Joseph’s squad that is coming off of one of its best seasons in program history, in which the Hawks (9-10) turned in the second-high, single-season win total in program history and reached the Atlantic 10 postseason for the first time since 2009.
