Shoreham Wading River High School senior attack-midfielder Courtney Rich has made a commitment to play Division I lacrosse at Kennesaw State University.
Courtney Rich ledger:
High School: Shoreham Wading River HS
Graduation Year: 2014
College Choice: Kennesaw State University
Club Affiliation: Long Island Yellow Jackets
Academic Honors: Honor Roll and Academic Achievement
What will you major in/study? Exercise Science and Kinesiology
Why did you choose Kennesaw State? “The coaches saw me at a recruiting tournament and when I went to look at the school, I fell in love with it. The housing was awesome and the team and coaches couldn’t be more welcoming. The school had my major and I wanted to make sure I could go onto a masters if I choose. I wanted to play competitive lacrosse and since this is a fairly new Division 1 program, I wanted to be a part of making it grow. The area around the school was also important to me, I wanted to feel safe and have things to do if I went outside or off campus.”
HS team’s outlook for next season? “In High School it’s going to be a difficult season, the majority of our team was all seniors who just graduated last year, and our Head Coach recently moved on. We have a small group of seniors this year playing and we have to fill the roles of those who graduated and really come together as a team to rebuild.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for supporting me through this whole process and helping me get through it all. Also I want to thank my travel coach for all the advice she gave me and helping me improve not only as a player but as an individual.”
Other schools considered: Umass Lowell, University of Tampa, Pfeiffer, Mercy, Gannon
