Univest’s SuburbanOneSports.com Featured Female Athlete (Week of May 24)
Amy Cross was a captain of both Upper Dublin’s field hockey and lacrosse squads this year. A first team All-American in lacrosse, she was a four-year varsity starter and this spring was named the SOL American Conference Player of the Year. She scored 226 goals during a stellar career and had 72 this year for a Flying Cardinal squad that rolled to an American Conference crown during an undefeated regular season. “She’s been a really good leader this year on a team where, a lot of games we didn’t get challenged a whole lot, and we had to keep the girls focused,” coach Dee Cross said.
Cross – one of three finalists for the Upper Dublin Medal – will be playing in the inaugural National Senior Showcase in Disney World in July. Her considerable talents have earned her a lacrosse scholarship to Syracuse University this fall. She is undecided on a major.
