Tim Monihan and Farmers Insurance recognize senior goalie Rosa Pompeo as the seventh Player of the Week for the spring sports season.
“The chemistry is really strong, and we are all hyping each other up before a game,” Pompeo said when asked about her favorite part about being on the lacrosse team.
Pompeo splits time with sophomore goalie Maggie Kluemper in most games, while posting many saves throughout the season Pompeo was praised by head Coach Mary Lehman for her attitude and overall work ethic.
“She is just a tremendous amount of leadership on our team,” Lehman said. “She’s the athlete that does things when nobody is looking.”
