This has been an outstanding year for Pallotti’s very own Quai Skeete-Ridley both on the lacrosse field and the track.
She recently scored her 250th goal, which is a major accomplishment for any high school lacrosse player, the equivalent of a basketball player scoring their 1000th point. it was a crazy and unexpected feeling for Skeete-Ridley, who didn’t even realize that she was close to reaching that goal.
This year, she became the first female lacrosse player to become the IAAM player of the week for her accomplishments on the lacrosse field. Her 17 goals and added five assists to bring her impressive senior season totals to 62 goals, 11 assists, 10 caused turnovers and 56 draws controls in just a dozen games this spring for the 9-3 Panthers, who are sitting atop the C Conference Gold Division.
“Quai is a tremendously talented player and leader,” coach Mark Mozier said. “As a captain, she is constantly working and training with her teammates to make herself and her team the best that they can be. Her dedication to the sport is second to none.”
Along with being a star player on the lacrosse team she also participates in outdoor track when her schedule allows, where she holds a variety of Pallotti records as of last year including the 55m (which was surpassed this year by Kamy Padgham), 500m, 4×1, 4×2, 4×4.
She has been very dedicated to sports her entire life but has also managed to maintain a 4.2 GPA.
This year the senior has committed to play Division 1 lacrosse at Howard University.
