In today’s Senior Spotlight, we visit a senior member of the Bloomsburg University women’s lacrosse team who recently had her final season cut far too short.
The NCAA announced back on Thursday, March 12 that all 2020 winter and spring championships have been cancelled due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
In her four-year career at Bloomsburg, Wozniak played in 56 total games for the Huskies and registered 26 goals and 32 assists for a total of 58 career points, just over one point registered per contest.

Bloomsburg was in second place in the PSAC Eastern division standings behind just West Chester before the cancellation of the season. The Huskies did not make it into their bulk of conference play on their schedule.
The women’s lacrosse team was another one of the seven-spring varsity athletic teams at Bloomsburg that played just few games in the 2020 calendar year.

The senior midfielder posted the breakout performance she was waiting for in a Bloomsburg uniform, recording a career high six goals and an assist for seven total points in the 24-9 victory.
One of Wozniak’s six goals in the game against Wilmington was an impressive highlight reel behind the back tally that got plenty of Twitter attention following the game.
“Everything happens for a reason like having myself a big game at Wilmington, and looking back at it now after everything, it feels like it was supposed to happen in a weird way.”
“It’s also upsetting in a way because it shows that my team and I were just getting started and that there was so much more to come,” she said.

Attacker Grace Kelleher, midfielder Cailyn Gormley, defensemen Delaney Shappert and goalkeeper Angela DiPasquale were among the other four seniors for BU that had their final season in a Huskies uniform cut short.
The NCAA has granted all spring athletes an extra year of eligibility following the cancellations due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
