Last spring, Jordyn DiCostanzo scored more than 65 goals and midway through the season posted the 200th point of her career.
Now, that career has taken a new turn as the soon-to-be senior has become the first lacrosse player — male or female — from Eastchester High School to commit to play Division I lacrosse.
The 17-year-old, who began playing lacrosse in third grade, will play for Manhattan College, where she’ll receive a half scholarship to start, with the possibility of more support later.
Several D-I schools recruited the attacker but DiCostanzo, who’s probably as well known for her ability to win draws as for her prolific scoring, liked what she saw at the Bronx school when given a tour by Elizabeth Weber, who became coach last fall. She also liked Weber’s plans for the team, which went 4-13 last spring.
“It was really awesome,” DiCostanzo said. “She’s a new coach and she wants to build the program. The school has great opportunities and I think I can make an impact.”
