La Salle Signs 14 for 2013-2014 During the NLI Early Period

Maddie Long (Lancaster, Pa./Lampeter-Strasburg) scored 58 goals for Lampeter-Strasburg last season. Long earned Section 2 First Team honors last season and ranked in the top 10 in overall points (77) in Section 2.

Taglianetti on Long: Maddie will do all the dirty work in the midfield and her game is all about her hustle. Maddie is a natural athlete that is just beginning to develop her lacrosse abilities. She has a lot of untapped talent and we believe she's only going to get better in time.

Kiara Lynch (Richboro, Pa./Archbishop Wood) is a three-sport athlete who also played soccer and ran track. The 5'4 midfielder scored 31 goals and assisted on two others as a junior last season. She also has academic credentials, as she is in the top 10 percent of her class and a member of the National Honor Society.

Taglianetti on Lynch: Kiara is perhaps our most versatile player in the recruiting class. She has excellent speed and footwork combined with maturity on the lacrosse field. Kiara can play midfield just as well as she can defend, and this is a testament to her amazing athletic attributes. Kiara has all the tools that will easily translate to the college game.

Toni Massetti (Kennett Square, Pa./Kennett), a U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American is a 5'1 midfielder/attacker who has scored 92 goals and dished 18 assists in her career. The Ches-Mont All-League Third Team pick also picked up 108 ground balls and recorded 42 draw controls her junior year. Massetti was also an All-League volleyball player, breaking the school career record for digs this past season as a libero.

Taglianetti on Massetti: Toni is truly a diamond in the rough. She's tough, gritty, and a fierce competitor that is a true two way middie. We love Toni's attitude towards challenges and she seems to have the ability to step up in big game situations. Toni was just getting started her high school career, and having never played club, we cannot wait to get her into our program to get some full time coaching.

Abbey Meehan (Arnold, Md./Broadneck) is another well-rounded student-athlete, bringing experience in three sports (lacrosse, field hockey and basketball). The 5'6 midfielder was also an Offensive Player of the Year pick in field hockey and second leading scorer in her county.

Taglianetti on Meehan: Abbey is a Philly girl at heart and that Philly toughness translates to the field. Her Delco roots brought her back to La Salle for her college career, which we believe is full of potential. Abbey has by far the hardest shot we have ever seen and that is something any program can use. She's strong, physical and a huge presence in the 8m and we cannot wait to add this new dimension to our attack.

Danielle Strang (Malvern, Pa./Great Valley) is a local Philly-area product who will bring another defensive option to the Explorers. The 5'9 defender earned Second Team All-Chesmont honors as a junior. She was also a First Team all-league basketball player. Strang plays for assistant coach Mallory Tornetta's father Joe, at her alma matter, Great Valley.

Taglianetti on Strang: Danielle is a gazelle on the lacrosse field. She has size, speed and is an overall terrific athlete. She comes from a great pedigree, her father was a national champion quarterback for Penn State University; but we believe Danielle will be making a name for herself. Danielle has developed into an extremely versatile player and will be making the transition from defense to midfield in college. Danielle will be looked upon to fill some big shoes early in her career.
