A well-rounded athlete. Katie participated in the sports of Field Hockey, Basketball, and Indoor Track at LHS; but it was as a member of Coach Rick O’Brien’s Softball squad that she made an impact not only at Lowell High but also throughout the Merrimack Valley Conference and the entire state of Massachusetts. both as a dominating pitcher and a feared hitter.

During Katie’s freshman and sophomore seasons (2003-2004) she compiled an overall record of 13-9 on the mound for the Red and Gray with an ERA under 1.00. She led the team in victories. innings pitched, strikeouts, and ERA. Katie sharpened her offensive skills as well, hitting .351 as a sophomore while leading the team in doubles and stolen bases.

Katie’s junior year (2005) developed into one of the most outstanding seasons by both an individual and a team in the history of Lowell High School Girls Sports. With Lowell in danger of not qualifying for the State Tournament, the Raiders. led by Katie. caught fire and won 13 consecutive contests. Not only did Lowell qualify for States, but they ran the table, winning 6 consecutive tournament games en route to the Massachusetts State Division 1 Championship, Lowell High School’s first All-State Championship in any girls sport. Katie enjoyed perhaps the finest season in the history of LHS Girls Softball. She compiled a record of 12-1 on the mound with a miniscule ERA of 0.83 and recorded 71 strikeouts. She won six consecutive victories in the State Tournament, including 4 of her 7 shutouts for the season. She was the winning pitcher in the State Championship game. At the plate Katie was a dominant force. She led the Red and Gray in a host of offensive statistics, including school records in hits (44) and triples (12).

As a senior (2006) Katie continued her onslaught against the LHS Softball Record Book. On the mound she compiled a record of 10-6 while striking out 117 batters and fashioning a sparkling ERA of 0.69. Included among her victories were 5 shutouts and 2 no-hitters. Katie continued to dominate opponents as a hitter. She led the Red and Gray in virtually all offensive categories, including at bats, runs scored, hits, batting average, home runs, RBI’s and walks. Against Notre Dame Academy Katie enjoyed a performance for the ages, garnering 5 hits and 8 RBI’s while pitching a no-hitter, Lowell won the Division 1 North Championship before bowing out of the State Tournament. Katie was named as MVC Division 1 Player of the Year.

Katie was a four-year MVC All-Conference selection, Lowell Sun All-Star. and LHS MVP. She was named Sun Player of the Year and a Boston Globe and Boston Herald All-Scholastic as a senior (2006).

Katie completed her LHS career with her name in the top 5 or 10 in virtually every offensive and pitching category, including school records in hits and RBI’s in a game, hits in a season. triples in a season, career triples, and shutouts.
