Three senior members of the nine-time defending Catholic League champion Archbishop Carroll girls’ team today signed National Letters of Intent to play Division I lacrosse next year as Philly athletes continued to ink their names during the early-signing period for Division I and II student-athletes.
The early-signing period, which began last Wednesday, ends, this Wednesday. Thus far 67 Philly girls have committed to Division I colleges; only those that commit to Ivy League schools or military academies do not sign Letters of Intent. Those schools do not offer athletic scholarships.
During a ceremony at Carroll, midfielder Jamie DePetris (New Hampshire), attack Genni Hull (American) and attack Margo Lesher (Sacred Heart) signed their Letters of Intent. A fourth senior honored in the ceremony, attack Aimee Gennaro, has committed to attend the U.S. Naval Academy.
Another new signing this week is expected from Marple Newtown senior midfielder Kelly Collins, who recently committed to La Salle.
Meanwhile on the boys’ side, there are 60 from Philly that have committed to Division I colleges. One of these student-athletes, Central Bucks East attackman Brian Urban, just signed with St. Joseph’s University.
Another recruit, Radnor midfielder Harrison Lawrence, plans to sign his Letter of Intent Tuesday to attend Lehigh University. Lawrence previously had committed to Fairfield University during the summer.
In Division II, Salesianum School All-American defenseman Mark Cyron has signed a Letter of Intent to play at national power Merrimack College. Cyron, of Lincoln University in Chester County, helped the Sals go undefeated last year in winning the Delaware state title.
