Senior Mae Lima of Dartmouth’s Bishop Stang commits to play volleyball at UMass Boston


Bishop Stang is pleased to announce that Team Captain, record-setter, and all-star performer Mae Lima (Westport) has committed to UMass Boston to play volleyball in college.

Mae loved the Umass Boston campus and felt that she would fit in well with the volleyball team. She said, “The coaching staff was welcoming, and this is in a place where I want to be. I look forward to being able to play volleyball on a campus that I really love.” I am excited to be on a team of girls who want to win and who are dedicated to the sport. Everyone will be motivated, and everyone expects to give 100 percent. It is Division 3, which will be a great competition, and we will still love the sport.”

Coach Amanda Tarantelli says of Lima that “Mae is the best player I have ever coached. She has worked hard from day one. She gives 100% all of the time. She reaches out to younger players and helps them. It is always about the team with Mae. It is never about her only. It has been a blessing to get to coach her. I have learned more from Mae than she has probably gotten from me. Her passion transfers to the other girls on the team ” Tarantelli recalls Lily Surprenant saying, “I want to be the best setter I can be so I don’t let Mae down.” Sums up Athletic Director Dennis Golden “[UMB Coach] Stacy Cheney will be getting a top student-athlete in Lima”.

Assistant Athletic Director Nate Greene echoes Tarantrelli’s sentiments, citing LIma’s passion as the part of her game that stands out. Over the course of her career, Lima was a two-time CCL All-Star, a Standard-Times Super Teamer, and a Standard-Times All-Star. She is Bishop Stang’s career leader in Kills and Aces and the season high leader in Kills. She did all this while participating in only four games in her sophomore year.

Mae is excited to pursue studies in Exercise & Health Sciences at UMass Boston and credits her years at Bishop Stang with helping to drive these interests. “I loved my Anatomy & Physiology class at Bishop Stang with Mrs. Habershaw.” She says many conversations with Bishop Stang athletic trainer Mike Cordeiro also sparked an interest in Health Sciences.

Lima also thanks her family for supporting her in getting to this point. “They have always supported me. I want to thank my parents (Greg & Jen), my sister (Sophie), and my grandmother (Marilyn Rigby) because she is the reason why I’m here at Stang in the first place.”

The Bishop Stang family shares Mae’s excitement and wishes her the best as she moves forward.

The commitment signing took place at Bishop Stang High School in North Dartmouth, MA. Contact Bishop Stang Athletic Director Dennis Golden for more details on the National Letter of Intent at dgolden@bishopstang.com or (508) 996-5602 x 427.”
