WEST HARTFORD, Conn. - The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the abrupt end to the spring sports season for the 2019-20 academic year, as well as the cancelation of several year-end activities for all student-athletes. As the semester comes to a close, the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) Department of Athletics would like to take the opportunity to thank its spring senior student-athletes whose seasons were cut short with a virtual Senior Day for each team.
Leading off our virtual Senior Day tributes is the USJ women's lacrosse team. The women's lacrosse team features one senior who will be dearly missed, senior attack/midfielder #22 Charlotte Eberhardt. A staple in the starting lineup for the past four seasons, Eberhardt started in all but one game over her collegiate playing career. In 43 career games played, Eberhardt racked up 61 goals and 13 assists for 74 career points. She also tallied 87 career ground balls, 52 draw controls, and 37 caused turnovers.
"Charlotte has always been a player who was committed to being her best and putting it all out on the field every time she stepped on it," stated head women's lacrosse coach Karen Nell. "She took great pride in being a Blue Jay and was always competitive and aggressive which made other teams fear her. Charlotte believed in challenging her teammates to be better and supporting our Lacrosse family. We wish Charlotte the best and want her to know that she will always be a part of our Blue Jay Family."
A native of Thomaston, Connecticut, Eberhardt will be graduating from USJ with a major in History. Thank you for all of your contributions throughout your career to USJ Athletics.
