Senior Tessa Loria, committed to play D3 lacrosse at Colby College, has been a standout on the Varsity Girls Lacrosse team. Loria plays defense and has been on the Varsity team since freshman year.

Loria has played for Pelham teams since the first grade along with her club team Primetime.

“I’ve always wanted to play lacrosse in college and look forward to doing so because I love the competitive atmosphere and the family aspects that come with a team,” Loria said,

She does not plan on playing beyond college but would love to be a part of the coaching side of the game one day.

Loria said, “As for what I’m most looking forward to, I’d say the camaraderie of a team and furthering my passion and love for the game at the collegiate level.”

In three seasons Loria has broken the PMHS record by becoming the All Time Leader in Caused Turnover with 90. The team was the 2021 League Champions.
