Ohio Valley U. Inks Two During the NLI Period

Ohio Valley University has announced the signing of two student-athletes to National Letters of Intent for the 2013 season, Josh Tracy (Aurora, CO) and Travis Rasmussen (Centennial, CO). Both play at Grandview High School in Colorado.

"These guys are some talented defensemen. They complement each other very well. Josh is a speed and takeaway kind of guy and will cause some havoc down low, and Travis plays great body positioning and his slides are spot-on," said assistant coach Corey Struss. "I expect them to push our defense from the moment they arrive on campus."

Tracy, who played football for many years, has excelled at a tremendous rate in lacrosse. After turning down Division I offers to pursue his talents at OVU, he will be looked upon as a leader through his athleticism and talent.

Rasmussen has been a starter at both LSM and down low defense. Using his size and strength as an advantage, he will bring an unprecedented attitude to OVU's defense.

The Fighting Scots are currently preparing for their second year in NCAA Division II. They will open the season on February 11 at St. Andrews Presbyterian College.
