Humans of Sacred Heart – Grace Paletta '17



When did you start playing lacrosse and why did you begin? 
“I started playing lacrosse when I was in elementary school. Everyone in my family plays lacrosse, including my dad so when I was old enough to start playing I felt like it was a right of passage in my family.”
Why did you decide to play lacrosse in college?
“I decided to play lacrosse in college because I truly enjoy playing. As I began applying to college, thinking about not continuing to play just didn’t sit well with me because playing makes me happy, so when I had to opportunity to play in college I jumped at the chance.”
What is your favorite memory of your time playing lacrosse? 
“One memory that stands out in my mind is when I was a freshman at Greenwich High School with my two older sisters and we were all on the same lacrosse team. I got to be in the same midfield line as both of my sisters and having the opportunity to play all together was incredible.”
