Swarthout draws accolades on and off the field
Mary Swarthout had offers to play lacrosse for Division I athletics programs at other universities, but none of them promised her what she really wanted: a chance to play sports and still graduate with a nursing degree in four years.
“Those schools made it clear that nursing was one of the
hardest majors to complete while playing Division I
lacrosse,” says Swarthout. “In the end I wanted to make
sure that I could graduate with a nursing degree in four years and
Catholic University was the perfect place to do that. It was not
easy to turn down Division I offers at the time, but I would not
change my decision.”
