From Press Release
Head coach Hannah Rudloff and the Drexel women’s lacrosse team has announced the addition of ten signees to join the program for the 2016-17 academic year. These new student athletes will join the program for Rudloff’s fourth year at the helm of the Dragons, and are expected to have an immediate impact on the squad. All ten are multi-sport athletes, a trait Rudloff believes will help them physically and mentally on the lacrosse field for the Dragons.
Heather Camden is a product of Downingtown West and the Phantastix club team. Her sister, Meg, is a freshman at Ohio State. A defender, Camden brings quickness and awareness to the field thanks in part to her experience on the basketball court, where she also plays for Downingtown West.
Paige Loose is an attacker out of Conestoga High and the Ultimate Goal Lacrosse Club. She is a fast lefty who can weave through defenses. She is particularly adept at bringing the ball upfield in transition.
Last season, Loose’s Conestoga team fell in the PIAA State Championship to Garnet Valley, which will be the alma mater of Rachel Warden. Warden is a defender with a noteworthy presence in the midfield. She has high awareness on the field and has shown the capability to pick teammates up after they make a mistake or find themselves out of position. Warden’s Garney Valley team also won the PIAA State Championship in 2014. She played her club lacrosse for Ultimate Goal along with Loose.
Courtney Dietzel, a midfielder from Central Bucks South and the Ultimate Goal Lacrosse club, is a strong player who has shown an ability to attack the net. She is a tall player with a powerful shot who can disrupt opponents’ offenses with her strength and size on the defensive end.
Emma Cassilly is a midfielder from C. Milton Wright in Bel Air, Md. She is a high-motor player who does not stop moving for the entire 60 minutes of a game. A good player on the draw, Cassilly has a nose for the ball. She played her club ball at Northeast Maryland Select (NEMS).
Caroline Cummings is also a Maryland product, out of Mercy High School in Baltimore and the TLC club. A midfielder, Cummings is a tall player with a good shot and strong overall game sense. Her father, Dan, played at the University of Virginia.
Arden Edgerton is a midfielder currently playing for Manchester Essex in Massachusetts. Edgerton, who is from Maryland and also lived in California, is a vocal leader on the field who brings great energy to the game. A natural leader and a hard worker, Edgerton plays for one of the top club teams in the area, the Skywalkers.
Caroline Friberg out of State College, Pa. is a tall, physically strong attacker. She has a powerful shot and can overwhelm defenses with her strength and aggressive mentality. Her potential as a scorer is immense, something Rudloff looks forward to unleashing. Friberg played for Skywalkers along with Edgerton.
Jamie and Lucy Schneidereith come to Drexel from Towson High School in Maryland and the M&D club team. The sisters are midfielders, with Jamie showing more of an attacking mentality. They display great speed and ball-handling ability. The duo compliments each other well on the field. Jamie and Lucy are two of four quadruplets, and all four have signed letters of intent to play Division I lacrosse. Their sister Georgia will play at Albany and their sister Maggie will play at Johns Hopkins.
