She also oversaw Caldwell’s intramural program as the school’s Director of Recreation Sports.
Petrusic spent the 2014-15 academic year at Rochester Institute of Technology. She spent the fall semester as an intern, becoming heavily involved with game operations, budget planning and oversight, and compliance monitoring during the fall semester before moving into an assistant coaching and game management role in the spring.
Petrusic earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Biology from Duquesne University in 2013. She was a four-year starter for the Dukes’ women’s lacrosse team, scoring 32 career goals and earning Atlantic 10 Conference Rookie of the Year honors in 2010. She received a Master’s degree in Sport Administration from Canisius in 2014.
