Here's a recent story on her


She was named the #3 Girls lacrosse attacker of the decade by Varsity Sports network and this is from the story:

This spring, she played five games before she suffered a back injury. She opted to redshirt, because she planned to transfer after the season. She has three years of eligibility remaining and although she said she loved Florida and her teammates, she felt she could better flourish in a program with a different approach to attack.

“I had a good freshman year and a decent sophomore year before COVID canceled the season,” said Mardiney, 21. “I had a back injury this year … I was thinking about playing through it. When I decided I was going to transfer, I decided to redshirt just so I could get that year back and put it toward somewhere else, because Florida didn’t end up being a great fit lacrosse-wise.”

In mid-July, the two-time conference academic honor roll selection was still waiting for her transfer to become official, so she didn’t want to mention where she’s headed, but she believes she’s chosen a program that puts more emphasis on attacking from behind the goal, a big part of her game.

“At Florida, they didn’t really utilize my position as much as they did midfielders and kind of like attackers who played from the top,” Mardiney said. The coach of the program where she’s trying to transfer “really values that position and I didn’t have that experience at Florida.”
