Mariana has made a home in Kentucky, and found a family on the Field Hockey team, but she didn’t come to Bellarmine to play Field Hockey. It took guts to ask the coach if she could walk-on to the team, and it took hard work to go from a walk-on to a starter by her junior year. That work ethic doesn’t just come out on the field, she makes time to study and get the grades for PT school while on the road, managing the balance beam of the student-athlete lifestyle.
