Stanford head coach Amy Bokker (Phoenixville) has announced the signing of nine players – including Great Valley defender Rachel Kalick – to national letters of intent. The class will be part of the incoming class next fall and will compete for Stanford during the 2012 season.

“We are pleased to welcome the Stanford Lacrosse class of 2015,” said Bokker. “This class is a great example of how women’s lacrosse is growing across the country. There is representation from six states – a true nationally recruited class.

“These nine student-athletes have great passion, work ethic, and overall athleticism and we cannot wait to have them as part of our program. We believe they will help us meet our goal of maintaining national lacrosse prominence on the west coast.”

The following are the nine student-athletes that signed NLIs:

Rachel Kalick – Malvern, PA – Great Valley High School – Defense
A 2010 Academic All-American
“Rachel comes out of one of the top high school programs in Pennsylvania,” said Bokker. “She has translated the game of basketball into her strong defensive game. She is tough and tenacious, someone you want on your team.”

Hannah Farr – Hillsborough, CA – St. Ignatius College Prep – Midfield
“Hannah is an exceptional athlete – she will be a dual sport athlete at Stanford playing soccer and lacrosse,” said Bokker. “She is crafty on the field with great stickwork and a smooth, savvy player.”

Kyle Fraser – Fort Worth, TX – Fort Worth Country Day – Attack
A 2010 first team All-American as a junior. Also the offensive Player of the Year in the state of Texas.
“Kyle is an excellent player that is shifty and can put the ball in the back of the net,” said Bokker. “She not only creates plays for herself, but makes others around her look good.”

Rachel Hinds – San Mateo, CA – St. Ignatius College Prep – Midfield
A 2010 Academic All-American
“Rachel is a true midfielder that has amazing speed,” said Bokker. “She is aggressive, smart and goes hard during every moment of play.”

Meredith Kalinowski – Toms River, NJ – Toms River South Highs School – Midfield
A 2010 Academic All-American
“Meredith is a versatile midfielder and has a drive and work ethic that is second to none,” said Bokker. “She is very consistent and does the dirty work on the field. Meredith also has no trouble finding the back of the net.”

Emily Newstrom – Cypress, TX – Cypress Woods High School – Midfield
A 2010 First Team All-American and the Westside Lacrosse Texas Girls Player of the Year.
“Emily has exceptional speed and athleticism,” said Bokker. “She truly plays both sides of the ball well, and has great instincts as a defender. Her offensive vision and fearless attitude will bring depth to our midfield.”

Chinna O’Suji – Missouri City, TX – The Kinkaid School – Midfield
“Chinna, as a basketball standout, will bring great natural, athletic instincts to our team, said Bokker.” “She is a presence on the field and a tough, strong player. She has the ability to play anywhere on the field.”

Anna Salemo – Littleton, CO – Heritage High School – Attack
A 2010 honorable mention All-American and Heather Leigh Albert Award Finalist. Also a current member of U-19 United States National Team and a 2010 Academic All-American.
“Anna is a strong, smart attacker that has an element of deception that keeps her defenders on their toes,” said Bokker. “She is quick and very hard to stop.”

Caroline Scanlon – Laurel, MD – Our Lady of Good Counsel High School – Defense
A 2010 Academic All-American
“Caroline is a tall, smart defender that plays really big on the field,” said Bokker. “She is a very consistent athlete that knows when to pick and choose her moments.
