Class of 2011

Soccer, Basketball, Lacrosse

Jill came to Nobles as a Class III student and had an immediate and palpable impact on three varsity teams. She graduated with nine varsity letters and five Independent School League championships.

She helped the Nobles varsity soccer team capture ISL titles in 1988 and 1989 and was named All-League three times. She was an All-State selection and a Boston Globe All-Scholastic honoree in 1990. At the end of her Class I season, she was awarded the Senior Bowl for sportsmanship, ability and leadership.

Jill was All-League each of her three years on the varsity basketball team and a captain during her Class I year. Nobles captured the ISL championship in 1989, 1990 and 1991. She was twice named to the Boston Globe All-Scholastic team and was a New England All-Tournament selection in 1990 and 1991. She was awarded the Seadale Cup for contribution to the girls’ basketball program in 1991.

In lacrosse, Jill played three seasons and was named All-League twice. In her Class I and Class II years, she played on a New England All-Star team that competed in a national tournament. She was honorable mention All-American in the spring of 1991, when she also received the Bride Award for athletic excellence and sportsmanship in lacrosse. Not surprisingly, Jill won the Nobles Shield that same year.
After Nobles, she went on to the University of Virginia, where she was a three-year starter on the lacrosse team and captained the team her senior year. The team won the NCAA Division I championship in 1993, and Jill was All-South Region second team in 1995.
