Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?
Athleticism and potential….speed for lacrosse is also huge. I can teach the stickwork aspect. In terms of personality – – – looking for someone who is highly motivated in all aspects of life… not be 1 dimensional, w/ school or lacrosse. Wants to do well at both (Haverford is very hard academic school – Ivy caliber student).
Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?
Player who was not the fastest, but she had unbelievable shot b/c she worked tirelessly doing reps outside of practice. For Division III we are limited in how much we can work w/ our teams (b/c of the academic aspect). It falls a lot on the players shoulders on how much they want to improve.
