Alexandra Hedden

University of Akron


“I wanted to ensure my spot, since University of Akron is the defending Mid- American Conference champion. When I went on my recruiting trip, I fell in love with the campus and the team. The girls made me feel at home and I knew I wanted to be a part of such a successful and hardworking team.”

Lauren Wagner

University of Indianapolis


“I went on many other college visits for lacrosse, but I couldn’t see myself being apart of their program the same way as the University of Indianapolis. The University of Indianapolis is starting a new lacrosse program so I thought it would be really cool to be a part of a new team.”

Justin Wick

Ohio State University


“My goal is to become a professional golfer and out of all the schools I was choosing between, I felt The Ohio State University gave me the best opportunity to do that. Also, I was born and raised a Buckeye and love OSU, so I couldn’t think of a better place to go.

Molly Plasket

Stanford University


“When I visited Stanford University, I experienced a feeling that I hadn’t anywhere else. Everything clicked for me, and I knew that was where I wanted to be. Deciding where I wanted to go to college was not easy, but Stanford’s track record for stellar academics and an atmosphere of excellence was hard to resist.”

Grace Long

University of Louisville


“I decided to commit to University of Louisville because I loved the campus. I met with the advisers and liked the way their program was set up for success both academically and athletically. The team aspects on the visit were something I really viewed myself loving and being a part of someday.”

Chuck Shewalter

The Ohio State University


“I was either going to play tennis or lacrosse for college. Ultimately, I chose the sport that I enjoyed and excelled at more, which was tennis.  All of my family went to The Ohio State University and the facilities and academics are excellent, so OSU is a great fit for me and a great tradition.”
