Lions Levelling Up: Senior Athletes

Sammy White will be continuing her athletic career this fall, playing lacrosse at one of the most prestigious programs in the country for both athletics and academics: Northwestern University. White is a 3-sport athlete who, in addition to lacrosse, has excelled in both basketball and soccer in her time at Dulaney. Dominating all three sports, she is one of the best multi-sport athletes that Dulaney has seen in recent history.

Inside Lacrosse, one of the top lacrosse media outlets in the country, recently published their women’s lacrosse rankings for the 2021 class, with White coming in at #6 in the nation. She is a dynamic athlete with game changing speed and will be taking her talents from Baltimore County to the Big 10 next year, starting what should be a great 4 year run for White and the Wildcats.

“I look forward to learning from one of the best coaches in the nation to help me improve my game and be a better overall player,” said White.

She is appreciative of her opportunity to play at Northwestern, and hopes to have as much of an impact on their program as she did with Dulaney.

“I knew since I moved across the street from Dulaney that I wanted to go there even with all my friends from club lacrosse going to private school,” said White.

This decision to stay near home and attend Dulaney is something that Coach Korrow and the entire women’s lacrosse program certainly appreciate. White hopes that she can teach younger girls that you can still get to the highest level by going to a public school, and that the program here at Dulaney plays at a high level which allows the athletes to succeed and develop as both people and athletes.

Todd Mozoki will be taking his talents to James Madison University this fall, playing baseball for the Dukes. Mozoki has that rare combination of a power arm and power bat, excelling at both hitting and pitching during his time at Dulaney. He has a daunting fastball, which he throws at 90 mph and above. He supplements his four-seam fastball with a changeup, two-seam fastball, slider and a wipeout curveball. Mozoki has been one of the best two-way players that Dulaney’s baseball program has seen in a very long time, and he looks to continue his success for the Dukes next year.

Mozoki is looking forward to “reaching his full potential and making memories with his teammates next year at JMU.” As a senior captain, Mozoki has prioritized setting an example for the younger players and leaving the program better than he found it; he is a true representation of what it means to be a Dulaney baseball player.

Kate Proefrock will be continuing her athletic career at Syracuse University this fall, playing field hockey for the Orange. Proefrock is crafty with her stick and has advanced ball control that allows her to get by defenders and score with ease. As a 4-year varsity player, she has been crucial to the success of the Dulaney Field Hockey team. Proefrock and the Orange will look to dominate the ACC and continue their success in the coming years.

Proefrock is “looking forward to seeing all of her hard work pay off and play on the big stage of the sport she loves.” She said that she has impacted the Dulaney Field Hockey program in a positive way by pushing her teammates and bringing out the best of them.

“As a senior, people look up to me and it’s important to set an example and show others what it takes and to push yourself to be the best you can,” said Proefrock.

Marissa Dailey will be continuing her running career this fall at the University of Delaware. As a 12 season varsity cross country and track athlete, Dailey has been an integral part of Dulaney’s success over the past four years. Last season, she led the Lions to county and regional championships in cross country. She will be joining the Blue Hens distance squad this fall as they look to place in high in the CAA.

Dailey chose Delaware because she shared similar views with the coach on training and liked the team culture.

“The way the girls described their experiences on the team and with the other girls and coaches made me want to join,” said Dailey.

Lions’ soccer star, Connor Culp, is headed to Eastern University this fall where he will be playing goalie for the Eagles’ soccer team. As a two time captain of the men’s soccer team at Dulaney, Culp lifted the Lions to their first regional championship in 17 years back in 2019. He was also named to first team Baltimore County in 2019. Culp is looking to carry that same success to the Eastern.

“My goals for the next four years are to be one of the best goalkeepers in the conference,” said Culp.

Ryan Choi is off to Carleton College to compete in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference for golf. Choi’s hardwork and dedication have shone through as he has been a consistent contributor for the Lions over the past four years in the championship season. Already, Choi is looking towards his future after college with golf.

“My goal is to continue to get better at golf to a point where I can compete at a small tour level,” said Choi.

But in the meantime, he is focused on “golfing and making lifetime friends for four years.”

Carmen Roy is set to play field hockey at Gettysburg College next year, adding on to the number of Dulaney field hockey players continuing their athletic careers. Roy has been a pivotal part of the Lions’ push for a state title in recent years. She will be joining a strong group of women at Gettysburg where she will be competing in the Centennial Conference.

After playing field hockey for 12 years, Roy’s goals are to make herself an “all around stronger person in the classroom and on the field.”
Emily Mowbray will be competing alongside George Washington’s Lacrosse team next year. In her four years at Dulaney, Mowbray has contributed to many successful lacrosse seasons two of which ended in consecutive state championship appearances. Mowbray said Dulaney lacrosse has strengthened her work ethic and ability to push herself. She is looking to continue that trend in the coming years.

“I hope to learn new skills to make me a better player and help push my team towards success during the season,” said Mowbray.
