LoCasto made her presence known on-the-court as well after racking up the second-most career singles (27), doubles (24), and overall wins (51) in UD history en route to an individual Flight "C" IIAC Championship. The senior also set a UD record for most single-season doubles wins with 10 in 2013-14 and finished runner up in the individual Flight "C" IIAC Championship.
