From Press Release

Davidson women’s lacrosse head coach Kim Wayne announced Monday the addition of eight recruits to the class of 2020 who will join the program this coming Fall. The class is comprised of three attackers, three midfielders, a defender and a goalie, while hailing from six different states.

“I’m thrilled to welcome eight recruits to this new class for next year,” said Wayne, who is entering her eighth season. “Our focus going into the recruiting process was adding speed to our midfield, quickness to our defense and aggressiveness on attack. We believe we found all of that in our incoming recruits and are excited to see them put it into action next season.”

The Wildcats will welcome to the Class of 2020: Maddie Hunter (Charlottesville, Va.), Lauren Wolfe (Coopersburg, Pa.), Shannon Blee (Baltimore, Md.), Shayne Antolini (Babylon, N.Y.), Delaney Guhman (Greensboro, N.C.), Genna Portner (Baltimore, Md.), Claudia Becker (West Chester, Pa.) and Jordan Wood (Hockessin, Del.)
