Shipley senior goalie Alli Kothari signed a commitment letter to play lacrosse for University of Michigan starting in the fall of 2015.
Kothari is a senior captain for the upcoming spring lacrosse season at Shipley. In her sophomore campaign, she broke the school record for saves in a game on two different occasions with 20 saves. She also broke the school record for saves in a season with 233 saves and was named to the All-Friends League and All Main Line teams. In just two seasons she has tallied 347 saves, and is on track to have more saves in a career than any other Shipley goalie (currently at 540).
When asked about Kothari, Shipley girls’ lacrosse head coach Katelyn Taylor said, “She is an incredible athlete and lacrosse player. She is constantly looking for ways to improve. This past season, with a young defensive unit in front of her, Alli saw a lot of shots and took on the challenge every game. She had double digit saves in all but four of our games. I’m thrilled that she has decided on Michigan, and am looking forward to following her collegiate career.’
Kothari was selected to play on the second of five Philly teams that played in the National Tournament last spring and was a member of the Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Team this past summer. She plays on the Phantastix Club team. Most recently Kothari was selected to be a member of the USA U-19 Team that will play in Scotland in summer 2015.Kothari said of becoming a Wolverine, “Michigan is such a competitive athletic and academic school, I’m just so thankful that I can be a part of it.’
