Lacrosse may not have been the first sport Sarah Muise has played, but it is one she said she is best at and has the scores and accolades to prove it.

“She is a great athlete and contribution to the program,” said Kelley Frassinelli, head field hockey and women’s lacrosse coach. “She has a huge work ethic.”

Frassinelli said Muise takes things to heart and it pushes her to compete at her best.

“She is a true leader in how she plays,” said Frassinelli. “She brings out the best in people.”

Lacrosse may be the sport Muise is playing now, but it wasn’t the first sport she played.

“I played softball for my whole life,” said Muise, with soccer being the first sport she played.

Musie said she wanted to try something new. She said once she was recruited to play lacrosse, she took it up quickly and stopped playing soccer and began playing lacrosse. Prior to playing for Southern, Muise attended Haddam-Killingworth High School and was an All-State and All-Conference selection. She helped her team win a Shoreline Conference title.

Muise said there is a difference between the two sports.

“I like more contact,” said Muise. “You’re more in control.”

Frassinelli said Muise is a good and funny kid, and off the field she will ask questions.

“The season has been goo so far,” said Frassinelli. “She is hard on herself after our last game.”

The women lost to Queens College nine to seven, sticking close to Knights throughout the game.

On April 2, for the third week in a row, Muise was named to the Northeast-10 Conference weekly honor roll.

“It means a lot for a sophomore,” said Frassenilli. “It gives her more confidence. She continually makes strides on the field.

Sarah Cebry, Muise’s teammate and roommate, said Muise is a team player and works hard.

“She is a team player and works hard. She is committed to the team and learns from everyone and the coach.”

Cebry said Muise always has a positive attitude and it has an effect on the team.

“She is always in a good mood,” said Cebry. “She makes everyone work harder.”

According to the Athletic Department, Muise played a role in the women’s three contests, which includes the women’s first win of the year against Post University, ending with a score of 13-11.

Muise scored eight goals and one assist. She also had seven groundballs, 12 draw controls and two caused turnovers. She scored both Owls’ goals against New Haven, posted a four-goal effort in the win over Post, and earned three points in their game against Franklin Pierce.

When it comes to the rest of the season and her careers as a lacrosse player, Frassenelli said it is up to Muise.

“She is going where she wants to take it,” said Frassenelli. “She has grown as an athlete. She could be one of the leading scores.”

With Muise being names for the Weekly Honor Roll and Player of the week, Cebry said Musie can be looked at for other awards.

“She will work harder for other awards,” said Cebry. “She is one of the nicest people. She is committed to playing Lacrosse. She goes out of her way for others to make sure they are ok.”

Muise said there are a few reasons she choice to play at Southern.

“The team was looking for new freshman,” said Muise. “The coach wanted me to come. Also, I am close to home.”

Muise said she sees a difference in how she has played compared to last season.

“I feel that I have a lot more experience,” said Muise. “I am more in control.”
