Maddy Krause, a senior at Regis Jesuit High School (RJHS) and resident of Castle Pines Village, helped pen her future on November 14. Krause participated in National Signing Day, when future women college athletes sign National Letters of Intent to play for a particular school. Krause was awarded scholarship money and signed on to play lacrosse for the University of Colorado in Boulder (CU) and she is thrilled about her future.
When she received the news that she had been recruited and offered a scholarship by CU, Krause was overwhelmed. “My heart was beating so fast I felt as if I was going to pass out!” remarked Krause. “I will be playing with some of the best players in the country. Our coaching staff is just amazing, and I couldn’t be more eager to get up there and play next year.”
Krause began playing lacrosse in fifth grade, and she has played on a club team and has been a member of the RJHS team since her freshman year. She plays a variety of positions, both attack and defense and she truly values her role as a team player at RJHS. “This team is amazing. It is a sisterhood inside of a sisterhood. There is such a bond between the lacrosse girls. We have each other’s backs no matter what. The team and these girls are my life. I am always so excited when the season starts.”
Krause plans to study education at CU, and hopes to eventually join the Peace Corps and teach in third world countries. Her four years at RJHS have given her the confidence to play lacrosse at a college level, and have meant so much to her. “The community at RJHS is like no other. The people are just amazing; I have had so many great relationships that I know are going to last a lifetime.”
