Calabasas native Krause decides on future with commitment to NCAA D-I Long Island


Izzy Krause is from Calabasas, but has played prep school hockey for the Bishop Kearney Selects the past few seasons in Rochester, N.Y.

Next season, Krause will stay in New York, starting her NCAA Division I career at Long Island University.

“This opportunity came up when I went to a showcase in Vegas,” said Krause. “Coach Kelly (Nash) saw me play and after the showcase was over, I contacted her. From there, we started communicating and I committed about three months later.

“The most appealing factor was probably how many options I have to study at LIU and just how welcoming the team was when I visited made me really feel like it was the right decision. The campus is also beautiful.”

Krause said that while she doesn’t have a concrete idea yet on a major at LIU, she is leaning towards something possibly in business.

On the ice, Krause wants to find her niche as a freshman.

“I want to go in with a hard-working mindset,” Krause said. “Nothing has been handed to me in my hockey career and I don’t expect that to change. I want to just continue to grow as a hockey player and be an impact player on the team.”

Playing for Bishop Kearney has been a turning point in Krause’s career. She is expecting big things this season.

“This season has helped me develop not only as a player but as a person to set myself up for success in college,” said Krause. “I believe that our team is filled with skill, but everyone is always willing to bring their best to practice and lifts every day. We push each other to be the best possible players we can, and I think that going into college, it will help my compete level be ready and make the transition easier.”
