A four year member of the Loras varsity team from 2003-2007, Pucci played striker for two Iowa Conference Championship teams, three NCAA tournament teams, and was a captain of the 2007 Final Four team. That year, Pucci earned All-Conference and All-Region honors, putting together the fourth best offensive season in program history (17 G, 1 A).
