WATERBURY, Conn - Hamden's Jacqueline Jolles has been recruited to play women's lacrosse at Post University during the 2010-2011 season. Jolles will continue playing as a goaltender in college while pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies.
"I selected Post University because I felt at home on the small, close knit Connecticut campus," said Jolles. "I enjoyed meeting with Coach Kowalik and I think Post University is a perfect fit for me."
An honor roll student throughout high school, Jolles is a self described aggressive player who tends to be loud and enjoys being a leader on the field. As the middle child, she comes from an athletic family with both her brothers, Jason and Jack, playing ice hockey. Jack, her younger brother, also plays lacrosse.
Throughout her high school career, Jolles has a 0.67 save percentage, a 2.00 goals-against average, and has allowed only 63 scores.
This past summer, Jolles played for the Connecticut Lightning and also participated in two tournaments on the Northern Stars as well as the Long Island Yellow Jackets.
Jolles is the goalie on the varsity Ice Hockey team at Hamden High School, a sport she also played at the club level.
Post University's inaugural season competing in Women's Lacrosse will begin on March 3rd against American International College.
