“We are excited to welcome this new group of Buckeyes to our women’s lacrosse family. They will add speed and depth at multiple positions. We went through a unique recruiting time with this class and what is most evident is the love they have for Ohio State. To witness how each of these athletes handled themselves, with such initiative and confidence, is a reflection of how they will commit to our core values – the foundation of our culture. We can’t wait to have these athletes and their families be a part of our program.”
