Congratulations to Starz ’19 attacker, Isabella (Izzy) Holmes, on her commitment to the University of New Hampshire (UNH). The entire Starz organization is thrilled to see Izzy compete at the next level! She will join the Wildcats, who compete in the America East Conference, this Fall and plans to major in business. Holmes was named MVP at Holy Names Academy her junior year and this season was elected team captain.

“Izzy has been an integral member of our attacking unit. She’s a constant threat around the crease and up top,” said Lyndsey Gillis.  “Izzy has fast hands, dodges quickly through space and makes smart decisions with the ball. She’s been one of our most consistent attackers over the past few seasons. I’m most proud of the work she has put into her game to reach the next level. There’s no doubt in my mind that Izzy will bring her strong sense of self, maturity, positive attitude and wonderful laugh with her to Durham. I am looking forward to seeing her play back east and will miss her lots.”

“I am so grateful I had the opportunity to play for Seattle Starz beginning in seventh grade,” stated Holmes.  “The entire program – coaches and players – changed my life. I want to thank all of my coaches: Lyndsey Gillis, Stevie McNesby, Ruth Bonner and Mike Pittas for helping me become the player and person I am today. Without Starz and their recruiting opportunities, I would not have the chance to play at the next level. I am beyond excited to represent Seattle on the east coast next year! Go Wildcats! Go Starz!”
