Council Rock North senior defender Casey Doyle has signed a letter of intent to play next year at the University of New Hampshire.
Doyle, a first-team All-Suburban One National Conference pick last season, said she liked the atmosphere of the Durham campus and plans to take advantage of the cold weather.
“I couldn’t be happier,” said Doyle, who has not chosen a major. “I think it’s a perfect fit for me. After I met the coach (Sandy Bridgeman) and the team, I knew it was where I wanted to go.
“My family has grown up skiing, so that’s a plus. The campus is gorgeous; it’s in a small town. You can hop on a train and be in Boston in only 50 minutes.”
Doyle is equally excited about the start of the season and the fact that Pat Toner – who started the lacrosse program before Council Rock split in the 1990s – is coming back to serve as co-coach with Carolyn Kacergis.
“I am so excited about the season,” said Doyle, who grew up playing for her mother, Marie Doyle, and Dave Hurwitz in the Council Rock Youth Lacrosse program. “We’re a young team that graduated our top two high scorers, and we have a lot of underclassmen.
“But I truly believe they will take a huge step up. I think these coaches will do awesome things with the program.”
Doyle, who has always played close defense, may be moved to midfield.
“I have always been a defensive player, but I may try a new position,” she said. “I’ll play wherever they want to put me.”
