JUST THE FACTS: Needing two wins to secure a berth in the Atlantic 10 Tournament, the VCU Field Hockey did just that toppling Saint Joseph's and La Salle at home over the weekend. DeMasi played a huge role in both wins, assisting on the game-winner in the 1-0 win over Saint Joe's and tallying the game-winner in overtime over La Salle on Sunday. DeMasi are headed to the conference tournament for the third time in four years.
ON HER MINDSET GOING INTO THIS PAST WEEKEND WITH AN ATLANTIC 10 TOURNAMENT BERTH ON THE LINE: I knew coming into this weekend my performance would be crucial to the outcome of our season. I tried my best to stay calm and lead the team in the best way possible, I was confident and I truly believed we could do it.
ON HER ROLE ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE OF THE FIELD: My role as an attacker is limited to my role as an injector on penalty corners. This is my opportunity to score or get an assist and I do my best to take advantage of it every time.
ON HER ROLE ON THE DEFENSIVE END OF THE FIELD: As a defender I am a leader in the backfield. I am fortunate to have had 4 years of starting experience in the right back position, this has really helped me understand the game and use that to the team's advantage.
ON BEING SELECTED TO THE SENIOR ALL-STAR GAME: This is an incredible accomplishment. I am very excited and honors to be able to represent VCU. I am looking forward to it!
ABOUT BEING A CAPTAIN: As captain I strive to lead by example both on and off the field. I know that I am a role model for the girls on the team and I try to always give my best effort day in and day out. This is truly one of my life's greatest achievements and I am so honored to be able lead a program that has made such an immense impact on my life.
PRE-GAME RITUALS? Not in particular. Just listening to music and walking to the home games with Nicole Barry. :)
LIFE AFTER GRADUATION? After I receive my undergraduate degree I plan on attending medical school. My ultimate goal is follow in my dad's footsteps and become a surgeon. I am looking forward to what the future holds!
FAVORITE MOMENT DURING HER FOUR-YEAR CAREER: My favorite moment was this past weekend, scoring the winning goal in overtime so we advanced to the conference tournament!
ON PREPARING FOR THIS WEEKEND'S A-10 TOURNAMENT: I am preparing both mentally and physically by taking care of my school work early, and making sure to run and get in 'regen' workouts so that I am one hundred percent ready come Friday.
ON GETTING STARTED PLAYING FIELD HOCKEY: I started playing field hockey in the 7th grade. I was really into soccer and basketball, but a couple of my friends were trying out so I decided to join!
STUCK ON AN ISLAND, THREE THINGS THAT YOU WOULD BRING: My family because they mean the absolute world to me, our three dogs, and some good books.
FAVORITE FOOD: Italian (Mama Zu's)
SOMETHING PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU: New York City is my favorite place in the world.
