Conestoga junior goalie Laney Stenson has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at the University of Delaware.
Laney Stenson log:
High school: Conestoga
Graduation year: 2015
College choice: Delaware
Club affiliation: STEPS Elite Philly
Major lacrosse showcases: Philly Showcase
What will you major in/study: “I hope to study Nursing.”
Why did you choose school: “I loved the Delaware campus, the coaches, the players, the very good academics and the entire lacrosse program. The first day I was there I knew it was the place I wanted to be to continue playing lacrosse and get a great education. I am looking forward to contributing to the vision Coach (Kateri) Linville has for CAA Championships and making Delaware a great team!”
Outlook for your high school team: “We lost a strong senior class which has seven girls playing lacrosse in college now. But we still have plenty of very good returning players and some younger girls that should make our team one of the best in the Central League and in a good position to do very well in the District/State playoffs.”
Other comments: “First, I have to thank my High School Lacrosse Coach, Amy Orcutt, for encouraging me to try switching from being a long time defender to goalie last year because she believed in my instincts as a soccer goalie.
“Next, I want to thank my goalie trainer, Katie Hartsock, who spent a ton of hours giving me a crash course on the position and advanced tactics.
“I also must thank my STEPS Club Coach, Brooke Fritz, for all of her hours of help and guidance with the recruiting process and showcases.
“Finally, I have to thank my parents for always encouraging me to put in the hard work to achieve my goals.”
