Delaware Signs Seven for 2013-2014 Lacrosse Recruiting Class

An outstanding defender, Ricci has led Garnet Valley to the state title each of the past two seasons and led the squad to a record of 25-3 in 2012. She earned first team All-Delaware county honors in 2012 after finishing the year with 39 groundballs, 34 caused turnovers, and 50 draw controls.

"Coley is an athlete and a playmaker," said Linville. "She is known for her ability to collect groundballs and draw controls. A positive communicator in the defensive end, Coley is a proven leader. She is likely to make an immediate impact in her first year."

An outstanding player at Mt. Hebron High School in a hotbed of lacrosse, Schwartz has been a two-year starter at attack and led the county in assists as a junior in 2012 when the team advanced to the state semifinals. She is an honor roll student and a member of the National Honor Society. She has also competed in soccer and basketball at Mt. Hebron.

"Jamie is a skilled attacker," stated Linville. "Jamie's vision and ability to feed and finish is what distinguishes her as a top attacker. Jamie is likely to make an immediate impact in our offensive unit as a lefty quarterback."

A fourth-year starter at midfield this spring, Wells has appeared in 55 career games at St. Paul's. A two-time team captain, she was named to the Towson Times Girls All-Star Lacrosse team in both 2011 and 2012 and was a 2012 Under Armour Underclassmen All-American. An honor student at St. Paul's, she also competes for the cross country and swimming and diving teams. She was a four-year starter in both sports, was the cross country team's top runner in 2012, and led the swimming team to the IAAM B Conference title in 2010 when she placed sixth in the freestyle.

"Shelby will add speed and skill to our transition game and our settled attack," stated Linville. "As a lefty dodger, she will add versatility to our attack unit. Shelby will be relied upon to make an immediate impact in our attack."

Delaware will begin another challenging 2013 slate on Feb. 16 when the Blue Hens take on Big East power Georgetown at Delaware Stadium. The complete 2013 schedule will be announced later this month.
