No one could ever tell Courtney “you can’t.” With a work ethic that was second-to-none, Courtney was a four-year varsity player for the Colonials. She was captain of the lacrosse team three times and over the course of her tenure at William Floyd, amassed 252 goals and 55 assists. In short, she was a one-woman wrecking crew.
As a Colonial lacrosse player, Courtney earned All-County accolades three times and All-Long Island twice; she was also selected twice to the Under Armour All-American team and was named an Academic All-American by Inside Lacrosse magazine. Courtney also excelled in basketball (All-County) and field hockey (All-League).
Courtney accepted a scholarship to attend Stony Brook University, which turned out to be a great move as she helped the Seawolves dominate the America East Conference throughout her tenure culminating with a No. 1 ranking during her senior year and a trip back to the NCAA tournament. The Seawolves lost a heartbreaker to the eventual national championship team Maryland 13-12. Courtney also set the NCAA Division I career goals record with 341, as well as the single-season goals record (100). She is also only the third player ever to amass 400 career points. Other college accolades include: two time All-American, Lacrosse Magazine Attack Player of the Year, America East Conference Offensive Player of the Year, Most Outstanding Player in the America East Conference Championship, All-ECAC (First Team), IWLCA Mid-Atlantic Region (First Team) and participated with the U.S. National Lacrosse team at their training camps.
