“She has grown so much as a player, especially over the past two years. Caitlin has become more confident and composed; that’s why she is putting all those goals in the net. She always got her scoring opportunities, but it wasn’t until the past couple of years that she started putting them away. She’s now a much stronger and smarter player and knows the game well, the type that always looks to shoot first.”
The Beverly coach believes playing in the WPSL this summer is only going to make Harty’s game that much better. “With all that experience I know Caitlin will not only be ready to beat her 50-goal record, but ready to contribute immediately to Holy Cross and help them become a better team,” she predicted.
“Knowing where I’ll be going to college is a big relief,” said Harty, who had two goals and two assists in the first game at the regional tournament. “All the emailing with coaches stops and I don’t have to fill out all those applications. I can really enjoy my senior year, and before I leave Beverly I want our team to have another great season.
“We want to win the Northeastern Conference championship which we haven’t done in a while, and I think we have a very good chance to accomplish that goal. Last year we lost in the state semifinals, and we’d all like to take it a step further this time.”
