Ohio Lacrosse Adds Five Players to 2002 Class
Athens, Ohio - Ohio lacrosse head coach Anne Moelk recently announced the addition of five players for the 2002 season. Meghan Ryan (Exton, Pa.), Jacqlyn Giangiulio (Downingtown, Pa.), Kimberly White (Loveland), Erin Fox (Cincinnati) and Lauren Dansak (Murrysville, Pa.) have all agreed to join the Bobcats.
Ryan is currently playing the attack midfield position for Dowingtown High School. "Meg will be an all-purpose player for us," said Moelk. "She has been successful as a defender, has great field vision and should add the strength to our midfield rotation."
Giangiulio, a high school teammate of Ryan, will play defense for the Bobcats. She will help support a returning group of senior defenders in her freshmen campaign. "Jacqui has a great stick for a defender," said Moelk. "She communicates very well with her teammates and should gain a lot of experience from the upperclassmen."
White will try to break into the goalkeeper rotation in 2002. The 5-8 netminder will most likely spend her first campaign learning the collegiate game under incumbents Jennifer Cassidy and Katie Borokhovich. Despite White's limited experience, Moelk sees a bright future for the goalie. "Kimberly has the two essentials necessary to be an effective keeper. She is extremely quick and not afraid to play outside the crease," said Moelk. "She is relatively new to the game of lacrosse, but has taken to it rapidly."
Dansak will compete for playing time in the midfield next season. "Lauren's biggest assets are her speed and tenacity," said Moelk. "She shows a lot of enthusiasm on and off the field."
Fox is enjoying a stellar senior campaign for Sycamore High School in Cincinnati. The midfield attacker has tallied 32 goals and 10 assists in nine games. "Erin is very aggressive which is a great quality for an attacker," said Moelk. "If she doesn't have the ball, she wants it and when she does have the ball, she wants a goal."
