Sherry Marcantonio was an all-Ivy League performer in both field hockey and lacrosse, and the winner of the Julie Staver Award as the top athlete in those two sports as a senior in 1983.  She also captained both sports as a senior.


Marcantonio was a defender in field hockey, but left her mark on the lacrosse record books.  She is Pennsylvania’s all-time leading scorer with 237 points, on 129 goals and 108 assists, both also the top all-time school totals.  She had 33 assists in one season, and six assists in one game, two more school records.  A three-year All-Ivy selection, Marcantonio was also an All-American in 1982 when Pennsylvania won the WAIWA Eastern Regional Championship.


At her graduation, Marcantonio was the recipient of the Fathers Award, presented annually to Pennsylvania’s outstanding senior woman student-athlete.
