Springside School senior attack Lindsay Yang has signed a National Letter of Intent to play Division I lacrosse at Lafayette College.
Yang said she plans to enter a pre-med program and is most interested in neuroscience.
“My father is a surgeon and my mother is a nurse so I have had a lot of background with learning about the medical field,” she said. “And I have an interest in science.
“I chose the school because it was close to home and I really wanted to be close by. At first I didn’t want to, but now I am happy with being close. I also chose it because it’s the kind of community I wanted to be in. It’s not a large environment; it’s close knit, just like high school.”
At Lafayette, Yang will play for Ali Fisher, a graduate of Hatboro-Horsham who also played at Lafayette and is a local club coach for Ultimate Goal Lacrosse.
“She seems really understanding and always is around to talk,” said Yang, who has received academic distinction in Visual Arts and English. “I asked the girls if she is there if you just want to stop by in her office, and they said she is always there and always understands.
“She takes the sport seriously and when I was on my visit I got to see a different side; not just the fun side. The team wasn’t practicing to its full potential and she got them under control right away.”
Yang is one of three seniors to sign Letters of Intent on her team; the other two are Courtney Caputo (Georgetown) and Nicole Lombardo (American). The Lions will feature a new coach, recent Lehigh graduate Sara MacIntyre (Agnes Irwin).
“We have a new coach and I am very excited,” said Yang, who has started since freshman year. “The program should be shaping up a lot. The girls are very enthusiastic.”
