A trio of Long Island lacrosse stars recently wrapped up their senior campaigns and are heading to Villanova in the fall.
Here's a closer looks at the student-athletes who provided their commitments to play lacrosse at Villanova for the 2012-13 school year:
DellaFera, a senior attackman for Friends Academy in Locust Valley, NY, tallied 40 goals and added 36 assists in his final season in a Quakers uniform.
Behind his veteran leadership and elite field vision, Friends Academy finished with a 12-6 record and advanced to the Nassau County Class C final at Hofstra, where they fell to Cold Spring Harbor.
Many would argue that DellaFera is one of the most physically gifted attackers in the county, but he always works hard despite his chiseled frame and raw talents.
Foley, a senior defenseman for Islip, tallied one goal and added a lockdown presence in front of the net this season.
Islip finished with five victories, including three wins in a stacked Suffolk League II, and Foley proved to be a durable competitor who is expected to shine at the next level.
Foley has a polished technique, as he always stays calm and composed while delivering checks to his opponents.
Sklar, a senior midfielder for Friends Academy, will play Division I women's lacrosse at Villanova.
She tallied 18 goals and added six assists in 2012, leading Friends Academy to an appearance in the Nassau Class C quarterfinal round, where it fell to No. 4 Locust Valley.
Sklar was an All-Conference selection in 2010 and 2011, and performed in the Long Island Elite Showcase each year since 2007.
She's known as a fierce competitor who should be able to adapt quickly to the collegiate level and contribute immediately.
