TT Naslonski: Randolph High School Athlete Spotlight


RANDOLPH, NJ- The 2016 season for the Randolph field hockey team has certainly started off on the right foot; thanks in part to both the right and left foot of their leading scorer, TT Naslonski. 

“Her speed is her biggest advantage when it comes to the playing field,” said head coach Gina Annunziata, when asked what makes Naslonski special.  “Her hand eye coordination is an asset too, most kids cannot just pick up a stick and keep the ball on it; she was learning the game as she played.”

Naslonski has supplied the team with the majority of their firepower, scoring 14 of the Lady Rams 18 goals in their first five games, as the girls ran out to a 4-1 record.  For her great start, TAP into Randolph has recognized Naslonski with an ”RHS Athlete Spotlight”.

“My teammates and I are excited for what the rest of the season has in store for us,” said Naslonski when asked about the road ahead.  “We are looking forward to playing Morristown again as we came up short in a 1-0 loss. We have a few tough games ahead, our coach emphasizes for us to take it one game at a time.”

Erin Corrigan and Carly Snarski work the right and left sides of the field, while Naslonski mans the middle up front.  Corrigan has tallied three goals and four assists, while Snarski has picked up a goal and two assists as Naslonski’s key running mates.

“Our team chemistry has been working very well, getting the ball out of our defensive end into the midfield, and then up to myself or Erin Corrigan. Erin has a strong hit from the right wing which allows balls to be played into the middle of the field. Carly Snarski has also stepped up tremendously on the left side of being able to use her reverse stick and beat defenders with her speed,” said Naslonski.

Naslonski has picked up this season right where she left off last season, when she scored 40 of her teams 74 goals. 

“TT was our leading scorer last year,” said coach Annunziata.  “I had no doubts with her being a senior, and with her years of experience, that she should be scoring the same or more than last year.”

As one of the teams three captains, Naslonski is a leader that both her coach and her teammates admire.

“The way she verbalizes her determination, and the way she carries herself on the field, gives her an edge to lead,” said Annunziata.  “The other players are really supportive and believe in her. The dynamic between the three captains is really special too, and I think this combination will help us in times of hard loses as well as great wins.”

Naslonski agrees with her coach about the bond the captains, and the team in general share, stating, “As a captain with Jillian Tucker and Kristen Sisco, we stress how important team unity is. We are inseparable as a team on and off of the field which we believe leads to much of our team's success.”

As for her post high school plans, Naslonski has verbally committed to Rutgers University to play lacrosse, another sport she excels at in the spring season.  Naslonski plans to major in business or in biology.

“It is also nice to have a player like her who has the drive and determination to win,” said Annunziata. “She will not hold back and will not be afraid to put her team on her back to get them the victory.”

My goals for this team are to make it further than last year. We felt that last year we were cut short of our season. This year we have a lot of new players stepping up to fill the spots. We hope to make it to the conference finals and finish with a win.

After a highly successful season in 2015, the bar has been set high for the Lady Rams.  Naslonski and her mates see it as a challenge they embrace.

“My goals for this team are to make it further than last year, as we felt that last year we were cut short of our season,” said Naslonski.  “This year we have a lot of new players stepping up to fill the spots. We hope to make it to the conference finals and finish with a win.”
