Temple Lacrosse Signs Seven Recruits for the 2014 Season

"Temple has everything I was looking for in a school," said Frederick. "It's a big school, it has all the academic majors that I am interested in, it's close to home and friends, and the lacrosse program is exactly what I was looking for. I'm very excited to attend such a great university, and to have what I know will be an excellent experience academically, socially, and of course, an excellent athletic experience on the lacrosse team."

Gallivan was already a team captain as a junior at Kennett High School, and earned All Ches-Mont honorable mention honors as well as Academic All-American honors. She has started on the varsity team for her entire career, while also playing field hockey and basketball all four years. Gallivan is an accomplished student who plans to major in international business at Temple.

"I chose Temple because it not only has a strong lacrosse program but also a top-notch academic program," said Gallivan. "I felt like I belonged at Temple as soon as I walked on the campus. I'm looking forward to attending Temple for so many reasons, but the opportunity to play collegiate lacrosse is the biggest draw of all. The coaches at Temple are everything you could ask for and more, and I know they will help me and my teammates reach our full potential. I cannot wait to wear that cherry red!"

Leading her team with 71 goals as a junior, Glassford helped Strath Haven High School reach the state finals. She was a second team All-Central and All-Delco selection, and also played for the highly successful club team Brandywine Majors. Glassford was a standout on the school's soccer team, earning 2012 Delaware County Player of the Year honors.

"Temple offers everything I was hoping for in a college," said Glassford. "It was top-notch education and an incredible athletic program all in a city close to my family. When I first visited Temple, I felt so comfortable with the coaching staff and the players, and now I'm excited to be an Owl."

Szczepanek, whose parents met while attending Temple and are both alums, is already a three-year varsity letterwinner at Cheltenham High School. She was a team captain as a junior, earning second team all-league and Academic All-American honors. As a four-year varsity field hockey player, Szczepanek was a two-time all-league selection and two-time MVP. Her sister, Caroline, is currently a sophomore at Temple.

"A majority of my family has graduated from, or is currently attending Temple," said Szczepanek, "so I have many fond memories of visiting my Dad at work and hearing stories of my parents' years there. Temple is an amazing fit academically, with so many majors in the School of Communications that I am interested in, and it is close to home so my parents can still come and see me play. I am so excited to challenge myself by moving onto the next phase of my lacrosse career, and my life in general. I am also looking forward to sharing my time at Temple with my older sister Caroline. I am thrilled to be the next Owl in our Temple family!"

Williams, out of C. Milton Wright High School in Bel Air, Md., recorded 46 total points as a junior in helping lead her team to a 14-5 finish and a conference title. She earned second team all-county honors as an attacker. Williams is also an accomplished field hockey player as well as a very accomplished student, having earned scholar athlete honors all four years. She has been extremely involved in student government, and plans to study law at Temple.

"When I visited Temple, I knew that I wanted to be an Owl," said Williams. "The atmosphere of the city, academics, and the lacrosse program are a perfect fit for me as a student-athlete. Coaches Bonnie Rosen, Jen Wong, and Julianna Jeffers are everything you can ask for in a coaching staff. Everything that Temple had to offer shined for me more than any other university."
