Biscardi Twins; A Dynamic Duo

Photo by LILJ

The Biscardi twins are great talents, their skill sets are different and that is exactly what makes them such a potent duo. Missy plays midfield and she flies all over the field. There isn’t much she can’t do. She put in 27 goals and added 8 assists during her senior year at Sacred Heart. The Spartan team in 2019 was excellent defensively, anchored by Cubby. Cubby was a defensive stalwart and was a big part of the Sacred Heart success in 2019. 

The Biscardi twins and the Sacred Heart Spartans went 13-6 last year and an impressive 8-2 in NSCHSGAA AAA play. The twins cohesiveness was instrumental when it came to the postseason, they cruised to the finals with an 12-8 victory over Kellenberg. Missy starred in that game scoring three goals. Their season ended the following game, but this will not be the last time you will be able to see the twins play together. They pair is attending Duke University and their season is starting  up soon. Before game 1 they both answered questions for the LILJ about their lives in lacrosse.

 

Missy

Q: How have you been enjoying Duke?

I have been loving my experience at Duke so far. It challenges me every day in the classroom and on the field. Being a part of a team of extremely kind and hard working girls creates an environment that fuels growth and success. I feel so fortunate that I get to be a part of this.

Q:Describe your sister’s game, what are her strengths and weaknesses?

My sister’s game comes from her pure athleticism. She is natural leader in the defensive unit and someone who I constantly learn from. I would say her weakness is that when she knocks someone over she always goes to pick them up. As nice as this is, it makes us man down getting into the eight sometimes.

Q: What attracted you to the Midfield position?

I was always attracted to the midfield position because I love being able to play on both sides of the ball. If we lose it on offense, getting the opportunity to get the ball back on defense never fails to motivate me.

Q: What was the highlight game of your high school career?

The highlight game of my high school career was beating St. Anthony’s in the Championship my junior year. We stopped what could have been a 10 year winning streak. It felt nice to finally get the win after years of hard work and close matches against great competition. I don’t think I will ever forget that!

Q: Where do you see yourself after college and does lacrosse play a role?

After college I hope to get a good job in business. I know lacrosse will still play a role in my life. I would love to train young girls to share with them the knowledge I have accumulated over the years, as well. There are so many opportunities that come out of the lacrosse world today that I know it will follow me and help me wherever I go.

Q: How did you get the nickname Missy?

I have had my nickname since I was born.

 

Cubby

Q: How have you been enjoying Duke?

Duke has been an enjoyable challenge both in the classroom and on the field. The team dynamic is one that makes the challenge seem a lot easier when you have 36 other girls encouraging you through the same experience.

Q: Describe your sister’s game, what are her strengths and weaknesses?

Her game goes along perfectly with her personality. She is a very selfless player because she is a selfless person. She will run the ball up the field in order to make the right pass and cuts to open up space for her teammates. If she ever messes up she is the first one hustling back on the ride and making it difficult for the offense to get the ball to our defensive end.Her weakness is sometimes the fact that she is not one to take the ball herself. Because she is so selfless she usually passes the ball when we all know she can take it herself. I guess this is also a strength.

Q: Why do you play defense?

I play defense because there is nothing better than a great defensive set where the defense comes up with a stop and the ball. I enjoy being able to protect the goalie and facilitating offense.

Q: What was the highlight game of your high school career?

My highlight game of my lacrosse career is actually a loss that my high school, Sacred Heart Academy had experienced against our rivals St. Anthony’s. We lost in the championship game, but with a few seconds left I was able to get the ball and pass it to our senior captain Isabelle Grant who was able to score her last goal for our school which had made the loss bitter sweet.

Q: Where do you see yourself after college and does lacrosse play a role?

am not really sure what I will be doing after college which is something I hope to figure soon, but I know that the challenges faced in lacrosse will help me to hopefully succeed in these endeavors.

Q: How did you get the nickname Cubby?

When I was little, my twin was unable to pronounce my real name: Christina, so she said Cubby and it stuck. Everyone calls me it and I sometimes forget my real name.
