W Lax Recruit: Christine Besselman, HS Junior

I saw this in my local paper in May, but I was not sure how good a player she was:  http://www.phillyburbs.com/sports/high_school/varsityrap/cr-south-s-besselman-picks-lafayette/article_529ab7b1-951d-545e-8e90-2cafa3453b83.html

Christine Besselman still has over a year of high school left.

But the Council Rock South junior already knows where she will be attending college.

Besselman, a midfielder for the CR South girls lacrosse team, will continue her playing career at Lafayette in the spring of 2014.

“When I visited there, everything just fit,” said Besselman, who was a Suburban One League National Conference honorable mention selection last year as a sophomore and a third-team pick as a freshman.


This week she was selected to the all-area "Golden Team":  http://www.phillyburbs.com/sports/high_school/courier/golden-team-girls-lacrosse/article_2655d511-4cdc-5429-84a1-b728ba5c01da.html

Key facts: SOL National Conference first team selection…named team MVP…a team captain…scored a team-high 46 goals…has already committed to Lafayette for lacrosse.

I was looking over the WLax recruits as well.  I figured there was no way we were getting this player without a scholarship:

Katie Denning (McMurry, Pa./Peters Township): Three-year varsity letterwinner in lacrosse…served as captain during her junior season…WPOAL Division I All-Star…All-WPIAL Team One…2011 U.S. Lacrosse First Team All-American…U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American…helped her team to the 2011 WPIAL Co-Section Championship in 2011 and a WPIAL Championship in 2009…played club lacrosse for Xteam and Intrepid Club Lacrosse…played two years of varsity field hockey…Academic High Honor Roll student...National Honor Society member…served on student council.

U.S. Lacrosse First-Team All American is a very big deal, believe me.

Definitely a scholarship player, no one of this caliber commits this early without one...good job Ali!!

Anyone know why Katie (and some of the other new recruits) are listed as sophomores?  http://www.goleopards.com/sports/w-lacros/mtt/denning_katie00.html

I thought she was a 2013 recruit? IF she is for the fall they are not giving scholarships until 2013

Lax Power lists her as a 13/14 recruit (Lax Power lists recruits by the initial fall ball year) which means she is currently a rising senior.  I think that makes her part of the first scholarship group.
