Bucknell Signs Eight Lacrosse Recruits for the 2015 Season

LEWISBURG, Pa. Bucknell head lacrosse coach Randall Goldsborough has announced the signing of eight recruits who will join the Bison in 2014-15. The student-athletes in the incoming class hail from five different states and will address needs at a variety of positions.

Joining the Bison this fall will be Amy Collins (Waxhaw, N.C./Marvin Ridge), Katherine Doyle (Vienna, Va./Flint Hill School), Sarah Galzerano (Garden City, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy), Mary Margaret Kenney (Summit, N.J./Oak Knoll Scholl), Eve Lukowski (Ellicott City, Md./Mount de Sales Academy), Gretchen Richter (Bronxville, N.Y./Bronxville), Corley Simons (Purcellville, Va./Loudon Valley) and Erika Stube (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius).

"I am very excited about our incoming student-athletes for the fall of 2014," said Goldsborough. "As a group, they add tremendous depth and lacrosse knowledge, and they all complement each other very well. I anticipate this class to come in strong and really push our current players, as well as add to the character that we so highly value in for our program."

This group of newcomers will be tasked with replacing a strong group of eight graduating seniors, including three-time All-Patriot League midfielder Katelyn Miller. Below is a closer look at each of the newcomers, along with a comment on each from Goldsborough.
