ANNA PISCOPO FEATURED IN THIS WEEK NEWS ARTICLE

From the May 11, 2017 issue of This Week Community News:

Upper Arlington High School girls lacrosse coach Wendy Pinta described Anna Piscopo’s role on the team last year as that of a “driver,” because she would sweep toward the goal and drive directly to the net to take a shot.

Although Piscopo’s role has changed for her senior year, the midfielder still helps drive the Golden Bears -- just in other ways.

Taking advantage of Piscopo’s speed and agility, Pinta has shifted her into the middle, where she can set and come off picks and move in smaller spaces between multiple defenders. The result was that Piscopo had 27 goals, nine assists and a team-high 51 draw controls through 15 games as well as, perhaps most importantly, 13 forced turnovers to tie Olivia Schildmeyer for the team lead.

UA finished the regular season at 14-2 overall after an 8-7 win at Cincinnati Sycamore on May 5, and capped off a perfect 6-0 season in the OCC-Central Division with a 14-1 win at Dublin Coffman on May 2.

Piscopo is a three-year starter in the midfield after seeing some time as a defender her freshman season. The Bears are seeking their third consecutive Division I state championship and eighth overall.

“I think this is where I was meant to be,” Piscopo said. “(The midfield) is where I have found my strengths.”
