FRESNO, Calif. – Fresno State women’s lacrosse head coach Jessica Pausewang announced the signing of four student-athletes to National Letters of Intent during the spring signing period. This adds to the class of three student-athletes signed during the fall period.
Joining Fresno State in the fall of 2012 is Sophia Aragon, Haleigh Bailey, Jordyn Frew and Meghan Macaulay. Already signed in November with the Bulldogs are Anjelica Fuccillo, Chyna Hill and Meganne Weissenfels.
“We are looking to build on the success that we have had this season with the seven incoming lacrosse student-athletes,” Pausewang said. “Our team is going to be even stronger next year, and it's from the foundation that we as a team laid down this year. Having strong leadership with our senior class for the 2013 season will help the transition for our seven incoming freshmen.”
“Sophia is an aggressive defender. She has great footwork, and causes a lot of turnovers in the midfield during transition, as well in settled play. She is quick to a ground ball and is a strong player on the transition with her ability to break away from a defender marking her up.” – Pausewang.
“Haleigh is a strong attacking midfielder that will add depth for us. Haleigh comes from a great high school program at Good Counsel and she has a great understanding of the game, I'm looking forward to her joining our attack and being a consistent contributor.” – Pausewang.
“Meghan is a dependable defender that sees the slide and comes up with the caused turnover. Meghan's talkative nature on defense will fit well with what we are building on from this year.” – Pausewang.
“She is a defender that sees the ball well especially during fast breaks; knows how to communicate effectively in man down situations and is constantly slowing down teams. Jordyn will be very helpful on our attacking transition with her speed on a breakout from a goalie's clears.” – Pausewang.
“With the upperclassmen's guidance they will be transformed into the student-athlete that we are looking to continue to build Fresno State lacrosse with, because for our team success not only comes on the field but also in the classroom and through community service,” Pausewang said.
