Cortney Gensemer log:
High school: Cocalico
Graduation year: 2014
College choice: Shenandoah University
Club affiliation: Xtreme
Major lacrosse honors: 2012 & 2013 high school section all-star, 2011 Philly Showcase Fab 40 All-Star, 2012 & 2013 Central PA National Tournament Team, 2012 Brine PA All America Team, 2011 & 2012 PIAA State Qualifiers
What will you major in/study: Pharmacy
Why did you choose school: “Everything about it was a perfect fit – a great pharmacy program, a talented team, and the perfect distance from away and a coach who immediately made me feel at home.”
Outlook for your high school team: “We have many returning starters and underclassmen coming up that should be a big help. Competing in the district playoffs is definitely possible, which will hopefully be followed by making state playoffs.”
Other comments: “I’d like to thank my mom for introducing me to the sport and being the first person to put a stick in my hand and my dad for never missing a game and always being there to support me. Thank you to my club coach, Mark Pinkerton, for teaching me everything I know. I would never be the player I am without you. I’d also like to thank my high school coach, Mary Beth Cardin, for always believing in me and pushing me to do my best. Mike Forry, thank you for the criticism when I needed it, the compliments when I deserved them and for all the things you taught me over the years. My last thank you goes out to all of the amazing girls I’ve got to play with over the past 6 years; the great memories we’ve made on and off the field won’t be forgotten.”
