Schonk was a three-year varsity starter for Head Coach Chris Robinson's McDonogh School squad. After Schonk became a starter at the beginning of her sophomore season, the Eagles did not lose a game for more than two seasons.
The Eagles have claimed the ESPN Powerade Fab 50 Girls national championship in each of the last two seasons, while also winning a pair of IAAM "A" Conference titles. She scored a goal and added an assist in McDonogh's 18-17 win over Roland Park in the championship game, helping her Eagles defeat current VU freshman Meggie Ramzy (3 goals, 1 assist) and the Reds.
Schonk was a senior captain for the Eagles last spring, following a fall semester where she captained the McDonogh soccer team. She is a five-time honoree on the school's Dean's List.
Outside of school, Schonk plays for coach Michael McLaughlin's Sky Walkers Lacrosse Club--a squad that also included Ramzy.

Coach Swezey on Schonk:
"Mallory is such a great fit for our program. She is a truly balanced player who can contribute anywhere on the field. Mallory is a huge offensive threat as well, with exceptional stick skills that allow her to get through any kind of pressure. We look forward to her arrival."
