Shari Krasnoo was a standout in soccer (forward), basketball (guard), and lacrosse (second home) before graduating from Wayland High School in 1987. She earned DCL All-Star honors in soccer and basketball as well as being a three-time All-American, the state’s leading scorer as a senior and the scorer of an incredible 324 points in her career. Her lacrosse teams won three state championships.
Shari attended Colgate University majoring in sociology and education. She played four years of soccer and lacrosse, leaving Colgate as the all-time leading scorer in both sports. She was a three-time All American in lacrosse and the nation’s leading scorer three years in a row.
Following her college graduation in 1991, Shari went to the College of New Jersey where she was part of two national championships in women’s lacrosse as a graduate assistant. She most recently coached women’s lacrosse at Boston College. Shari is currently a recruiter for a staffing firm.
Shari is very thankful to her family, especially her mother and father. Her father was a huge supporter of her high school career, attending nearly all of her games. He died when she was a freshman in college.
“I dedicated my college career to him as he was always on my mind and in my heart.”
She also credits her soccer coach John Mann, basketball coach Molly Walters, Donna Olson and Laurie Nelson, lacrosse coaches, and finally, all of her teammates “who helped us succeed.”
