The trio from that headed down to Jamaica were Tara Morrissey (Bishop Shanahan), Tatum Altman, and Kacey Kelly (Windsor, N.J. / Notre Dame-NJ).
They shared their love of the game and inspired a group of underprivileged kids how to enjoy the sport.
Head coach Ginny Martino expressed her excitement about her trio’s community service.
“We are so proud of our athletes and how they give back to with their time, experience and love of the game,” Martino said. “They represent us and our university extremely well.”
West Chester’s three sophomores took gifts of equipment, sticks and miscellaneous items overseas with them as well.
Over the course of the week, they worked the lacrosse camp, played soccer with the kids, and picked up garbage. They also cleaned up the town as well as visiting a senior citizen community.
