Buckeye head coach Amy Bokker on Leah …

“Leah is a smart attacker with a crafty stick. She is a mature leader within her class and carries herself with confidence. I know she will continue to grow as a player and contribute to our Buckeye attack.”

Leah, on why she chose Ohio State …

I chose Ohio State because the culture was so welcoming and exactly what I was looking for in a college experience. Ohio State women’s lacrosse holds each other accountable to be the best athlete, student and person possible and that’s the kind of family I want to be a part of.”
