Joran, who plans to major in sports management, said she liked both the academics and coaching staff at Drexel.
“I picked Drexel because they have a good co-cop program and because I really liked the team and the coach (Anna Marie Vesco). I’m excited to get to play Division I lacrosse, I didn’t think I’d get that opportunity.
“I also liked the fact that at Drexel lacrosse isn’t your whole life. And it will be nice to be in the city. There is a lot to do and I’ll never get bored.”
Joran, a first-team All-Ches-Mont National Conference pick last year, helped the Cougars finish 16-5 last year. In the summer she earned all-tourney honors while representing the PA Express Lacrosse Club in the prestigious Vail Shootout.
Joran also was an Academic All-American in 2008 and boasts a 3.8 GPA.
She said this year’s Downingtown East team will be inexperienced, but has potential.
“We have only three or four seniors out this year, but I think we’ll have a pretty good team,” she said.
