MSC's Lace: College of Saint Rose ‘the place for me’

November 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The past 24 hours have been bittersweet for Kelsey Lace.
On Tuesday night, Lace suffered the worst loss of her outstanding high school career when her then-unbeaten Mount St. Charles Academy squad was ousted in four games in the Division I semifinals by Ponaganset High.
It was a very bitter ending to a brilliant four-year run with the Mounties -- one that included a Division II state championship her sophomore year and what will soon be a repeat appearance on the All-State team.
