Swart was actually a three-sport athlete during her high school years at Archbishop Carroll, excelling in lacrosse, field hockey and basketball. She ultimately chose to pursue lacrosse in college, but her heart never completely left the hockey field. As the opportunity presented itself to have one more season of eligibility in a different sport, Swart is seizing the chance to make another dream come true.
Throughout high school, Swart played club hockey for WC Eagles and was part of USA Field Hockey’s pipeline as a member of the U.S. U-19 National Team. She was selected to the AAU Junior Olympic Games twice and consistently received All-Delco, All-Catholic and All-Main Line teams.
Although her fans have gotten used to seeing her with a lacrosse stick, Swart says she never completely put her field hockey stick down. She has been playing in a summer league of the last few years so her stick skills have stayed fresh. And that stick- it has always been a TK Hockey stick.
