Strath Haven junior midfielder Kristen Hansen has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Connecticut.
Kristen Hansen log:
High School: Strath Haven High School
Graduation Year: 2014
College Choice: University Of Connecticut
Club Affiliation: Ultimate Blue Pa
Major Lacrosse Honors: Under Armour Philly Team, Philly Team 3; member of 2012 PIAA finalist
Academic Honors: Honor Roll 2010, 2011
Why I Choose UConn: “I really enjoyed being with the team, I liked the coaching staff, the facilities were very nice and it has great academics and a beautiful campus.”
High School team’s outlook for 2013: “We are looking to make it back to the state (finals) this year with a solid starting line up backing up Hallie Yancey in goal, Morgan Glassford and Kirsten Wilhelmsen in midfield, Jess Borbee, Bri Irons and Lily Kovach in defense and Kathryn Restrepo and Erica Conner on attack, combined with fresh players with lots of potential. Our team is going to be a tough competitor even though we will miss our seniors.”
Other comments: Thanks to Michele Dejulius and Jen Duckenfeild, my Ultimate coaches, and my Haven coaches Rachel Busza and Laura Patton. Also thanks to my past club coach Donna Coyne for supporting and looking out for me and a special thanks to my Haven girls I’ve been playing with from the beginning for supporting me the whole way.
Other Schools Considered: Cornell University, Boston University, James Madison University
