All of them come from fantastic lacrosse programs and will enhance our program immediately. They have been staying in touch over the past year and will be able to come to campus already knowing a majority of their teammates and making their transition to the college life seamless. All of these young women have made an effort to improve their game and come to us in the fall motivated and ready to work hard for four years. We wish them luck this last year of high school and are very pleased to call them the class of 2018."
