Personal Statement : “Hi everyone! My name is Lily Bataloni and I’m currently a senior at Collingswood High School. I’ve been playing field hockey since I was three years old, playing for Collingswood Travel, Middle and High School, and also through South Jersey Edge since Seventh grade. South Jersey Edge is the place I learned all the amazing lessons about the game of field hockey to the next level and where I made the most astonishing friendships that I will cherish forever. South Jersey Edge pushed me to the next level and guided me to the collegiate level which resulted in me committing to play Division 1 field hockey at Wagner College in Staten Island. I wanna thank all the amazing coaches at Edge who pushed me to where I am today!! “

Other Sports Played:  Softball 

Other Hobbies/Interests: I love to surf during the Summer and snowboard during the Winter!!

A Note from Lily : “During the Summer of 2022, I was playing in a play day in Ocean City with my high school team and suffered an ACL tear while attempting to go around the goalie. I got surgery on August 31st, 2022. This injury has changed the way I see the game of field hockey and has made me appreciate the game so much more than I thought I did due to not being able to play my senior year of high school. This has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through but as a young athlete dealing with this serious 9-month recovery to be able to play again, I always remind myself everything happens for a reason and I will come back a thousand times better. I’ve learned that this injury DOES NOT define me as an individual and I am so much stronger than this. I hope every athlete who is dealing with a serious injury or any injury, in general, can see the positive effects of how much stronger it can make you mentally and physically, of course with some upsetting times, but trying to stay positive is so important during times like these.”
