Senior to Continue Basketball Career in College

Natalie Graf, Class of 2020, will trade in her green and white for black and yellow when she joins The Pratt Institute’s Women’s Basketball Team in the fall. A team leader and sharp shooter for the Tigers, Natalie was a key factor in the team’s success and historic run in the WPIAL and PIAA playoffs this year.
Dan LaGamba, Head Varsity Basketball Coach, shared, “I am extremely proud of Natalie and the fact that she is going to be playing basketball at Pratt next season. Natalie is one of the hardest working athletes on the court and in the classroom that I have ever had the privilege to coach. She was the first person on the floor and oftentimes the last one to leave. Pratt is lucky to have her and I wish her all the best. She deserves this and I could not be more proud of her.”

As part of nearly eight million students who participate in high school athletics, Natalie will join a much smaller subset of that group in college. Nationally, only about seven percent of high school athletes go on to compete at the collegiate level. Please join us in congratulating Natalie!
