She recently attended the Champion's Cup and Capital Cup in Midlohtian Virginia.
With her college choice settled, DiCostanzo is looking forward to making more important choices as she heads for graduation.
"I am still not sure as to what I would like to major in, and Manhattan has many academic choices, it was just a great fit for me," she said. "I was impressed by the Manhattan coach, who has announced her intent to build the Jasper’s program from the ground up. I am really looking forward to being a Jasper."
