Plymouth Whitemarsh High School’s Molly Lynch has signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division I field hockey for the Lock Haven University Bald Eagles.
Lynch was a four-year varsity starter at midfield for the Colonials, with 14 goals and eight assists her senior year. She was named Second Team All-Conference and Second Team All-State from freshman through her junior year while contributing to the team’s annual dominance as Suburban One League champions and the last three years as District runner up.
“My career at PWHS prepared me for my next step, because I learned how to balance my time and schedules equally as a student athlete,” said Molly. “I’m looking forward to a new level of competition to make me a stronger player.”
The team captain began playing field hockey in the third grade and participates in a club team called the WC Eagles.
“Molly was the complete heart of PW Field Hockey this year. On and off the field, she was gathering everybody from pre-season to the very last day,” said Coach Jess Randazzo. “She tried her very hardest every single day, and she really did grow into a great person and a great player this year. I’m so excited for her and to see all she does in the next four years.”
Lynch is also on the school’s softball team. She plans to major in Health and Physical Education/Coaching.
