The Moorestown Lacrosse Club congratulated eight Moorestown High School girls’ lacrosse seniors who have committed to play NCAA college lacrosse.
The Moorestown girls’ lacrosse team is one of the most storied and accomplished New Jersey high school programs in any sport and has for many years been consistently ranked at the very top of numerous national polls. Overall state champions for 11 of the last 12 years, recent graduates of the program have gone on to successful academic and athletic careers at leading universities and colleges.
Last year the Quakers finished a perfect 26-0 and were ranked second in every national poll behind McDonogh School (Md.). Moorestown also finished No. 1 in the final Phillylacrosse.com rankings.
This year’s Girls NCAA recruits (listed alphabetically) and their college choices are:
Megan Bianco – Marquette University
Mary Flick – College of William & Mary
Gabby Frank – Franklin & Marshall College
Alicia Geiter – Coastal Carolina University
Shannon Keeler – Gettysburg College
Megan Kelly – University of Pennsylvania

Maura Talvacchia – Presbyterian College
Kelly Dalmass, President of the Moorestown Lacrosse Club, said of the announcement:
“We are extremely proud of these fourteen Moorestown student-athletes (including the six Moorestown boys’ lacrosse players that signed or committed). Most, if not all of them, began playing for our club at a young age and each of them has shown steadfast dedication to their sport, their school, and their community.
“Each year tens of thousands of high school students play lacrosse and only a small percentage of them have the skill, dedication, discipline, and academic ability to go on to play at the NCAA varsity level. We are proud of their academic and athletic accomplishments and equally proud of them as young men and women.
“They will no doubt continue to make us proud as they go on to play at the next level. I know I speak for everyone associated with the Moorestown Lacrosse Club – especially the many dedicated volunteers, coaches, parents and club officers – when I offer each of them a heartfelt congratulations on their successful high school careers and wish them all the very best in the future.”
