Trish is considered by many to be the greatest women's soccer goalkeeper in Saint Michael's history. She was a four-year starter and a team captain for the Purple Knights, and still holds nine SMC goalkeeping records at the time of her induction, including: fewest goals allowed, season (14) and career (85); most shutouts, season (10) and career (21); lowest goals against average, season (0.92) and career (1.44); highest save percentage, season (.904) and career (.870); and longest continuous shutout streak (838:48 of game time!) Trish was named All-Conference and All-New England as a senior in the fall of 1989, as the Knights were 7-5-3 overall and a program-best 5-1-2 in the Northeast-10 Conference. That same season she became the first of only two goalkeepers at Saint Michael's to ever hold captaincy. They advanced to the Northeast-10 Semifinals for the first time in SMC history that year, where they fell to Springfield College, 1-0. The Purple Knights were also ranked in the top 25 for the only time in program history that season. in addition to soccer, Trish also played for the women's basketball varsity as a first year student.
