Screen shot 2013-04-23 at 1.22.55 AMRecently, I had the chance to catch up with the captain of the University of Dallas women’s lacrosse team, Mary Salotto, a senior psychology major hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah.

Lacrosse is in her blood; her father played lacrosse in high school and later played club lacrosse in Salt Lake City. Salotto herself has been involved with the sport since childhood.

“I remember always being around lacrosse,” she said. “I always enjoyed tossing around the front yard with my dad.”

Salotto has been playing organized lacrosse for 10 years. When I asked her about this lacrosse season, she explained that there had been a multitude of injuries. She is happy with this year’s freshman lacrosse players, and looks forward to seeing them mature into leaders on the team.

After graduation, Mary plans to work at a not-for-profit organization in the field of psychology and eventually to attend graduate school at Widener University in Chester, Pa. She added that she intends to continue playing lacrosse in recreational leagues around Dallas.

“I’ve also spoken with the [women’s lacrosse] coach,” she said, “and, hopefully, I’ll be able to help coach the UD team moving forward.”
