Joe Bendel profiles Sewickley Academy graduate Caroline Ross, who is now a standout lacrosse player at Tufts.
"Coach Courtney Farrell referred to Caroline Ross as "Miss Composure" during a riveting career at Tufts University.
Whether it was scoring the winning goal with 13 seconds left against eventual NCAA Division III lacrosse finalist Trinity College (as Ross did on March 26) or withstanding the pressure of taking the Medical College Admission Test (as Ross did last week), this Sewickley Academy graduate was grace under pressure.
"Nothing fazes her," Farrell said.
This mindset can be traced to parents Gerry and Lisa, medical doctors who taught their three children that any achievement is possible. As an intern at Pitt last summer, Caroline led a research project that investigated the cellular phenotype of children with Localized Scleroderma."
