Frankie Caridi

Frankie Caridi enters her third season with the Adelphi University women's lacrosse team in 2019.

Caridi returned to Adelphi after spending 2016 on the sidelines at her alma mater, Stony Brook, and the 2015 campaign with the Bucknell coaching staff. She helped the Seawolves to a fourth straight America East Championship and a defeat of Boston College, 11-9 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Under Caridi's tutelage, freshman goalie Anna Tesoriero was named to the All-Conference First Team and All-Rookie Team.

As a student-athlete, Caridi spent one year at Adelphi before transferring to spend her final three years at Stony Brook. As a Panther, the East Northport, N.Y. native started all 20 games for the Brown and Gold, and went 20-0 on the way to a National Championship. She was named the NE10 Goalkeeper of the Year in addition to an IWLCA First Team All-American.

In the Division I ranks, Caridi became one of the most prolific goalies in Stony Brook program history. Her .514 career save percentage is tops in the Seawolves' record book, while her 5.91 goals-against average is the best among any goalie with at least 1500 minutes played. Caridi won two America East championships and qualified for two NCAA tournaments, earning IWLCA Third-Team All-American status in 2014.

Additionally, she was named the Lacrosse Magazine and ILWomen.com Goalie of the Year, picked as the America East Defensive Player of the Year, a nominee for the Tewaaraton Award, and a two-time IWLCA First-Team All-Mid-Atlantic Region selection.
