Conestoga junior attack Abby Lord has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Cincinnati.
Abby Lord log:
High School: Conestoga High School
Graduation year: 2014
College choice: University of Cincinnati
Club affiliation: Phantastix
Why did you choose Cincinnati? “I loved everything about UC when I visited, both the academics and the lacrosse program were exactly what I was looking for. I was also born in Cincinnati about 5 minutes from campus so it should be fun to go back to where I came from. I am also looking forward to being closer to my Grandma and some of my relatives that live in Columbus. I’m sure they will be the best supporters.”
Major lacrosse honors: Maximum Exposure All-Star, 2011 Philly Showcase All-Star
What will you major in/study? Undecided
Outlook for your High School team? “Conestoga made it to the State Quarter-Finals last year. This year we lost some very key seniors, but we have a very strong team and we are all so excited to work hard again and hopefully make it to the State Championship!”
Additional comments: “I would like to thank my Stoga coaches, Amy Orcutt and Meghan McDougal; my Phantastix coaches: Joan Yusko and Sue Frazier.
“The one person I would like to thank the most would be my Dad. He has been the best coach, supporter, and teacher throughout my life. If it wasn’t for my Dad I would not be the kind of lacrosse player I am today.
“I also want to thank my Stoga and Phantastix teammates for making me better and for making my lacrosse years the best memories of my life!”
