Navy Goalie Jo Torres On Making the Next Save – LGR Episode 161

Listen on Apple Podcast

On today’s Lax Goalie Rat Podcast episode, Coach Damon sits down to chat with Navy women’s lacrosse goalie Jo Torres.

The native of Prince Frederick, MD is coming off a solid second season with the Naval Academy where she was named Second Team All-Patriot League for the first time in her career while leading the Mids to the Patriot League Championship game against Loyola.

The sophomore played and started every game, recording 136 saves with a .500 save % and 8.64 GAA during the regular season. Torres’ goals against average and save percentage both ranked fifth in the NCAA, while ranking second in the Patriot League.

Prior to arriving at the Naval Academy, Torres played lacrosse, soccer, and volleyball at St. Mary’s High School in Annapolis, after transferring from the Calverton School in 2018 earning Second Team All-Anne Arundel County for lacrosse (2019). 

Jo made her collegiate debut in the second half of the Star Game against Army, recording 10 saves over 30 minutes to help Navy to a 13-12 victory in the Star Game. In a rivalry as old as time, Torres owns a 2-1 record over Army (1-1 in the Star Game).

Torres would go on to start the remainder of the games that season for the Mids even winning Patriot League Goalie of the Week Honours twice and Patriot League Rookie of the Week. 

Torres grew up idolizing former Maryland goalie and Tewaaraton winner Meg Taylor. To Jo’s excitement, Meg would eventually end up becoming her goalie coach during Jo’s freshman year at Navy. Jo credits Meg for helping her develop her mental game and the importance of making the next save your most important save.

Jo joins the show today to talk about lacrosse in Maryland, learning from Meg Taylor, life at the Naval Academy, and much more!
