DeSousa  who also visited UNC, Duke, and Georgetown, has built an amazing resume during her years at Red Bank Catholic. 

As a junior last year, DeSousa placed 10th at the XC Meet of Champions last fall in 18:12, making her one the top returning finisher in the state, and she captured State Non-Public A titles in all three seasons (XC and the 1,600 indoors and 3,200 outdoors), ran a Holmdel PR of 18:26. This past spring, DeSousa ran huge PR's of 2:11.63, 4:49.06, and 10:25.43, which made her the only girl in the state to go sub 2:12, sub 4:50, and sub 10:30 during the season! How awesome is that!!!
