    ATHENS, Ohio – Nine players will make up the 2003 Ohio Lacrosse recruiting class, announced Bobcat head coach Kate Brew today. Jen Ator (Hudson), Amanda Diehl (Westminster, Md.), Devon Dow (Potomac, Md.), Kari Fasick (Marriottsville, Md.), Shannon Hadaway (Pasadena, Md.), Jen Heup (Davidsonville, Md.), Lindsey Marshall (Hilliard), Julie Roguski (Eldersburg, Md.) and Frannie Sullivan (Davidsonville, Md.) will join an Ohio team that graduates six seniors following the upcoming 2004 season.

    “I couldn’t be more pleased with this year’s recruiting class,” said Brew, currently in her second year at the Bobcats’ helm. “We have every position represented, from the attack to a goalkeeper. These nine girls will be entering Ohio University with a very strong foundation and will take to the college game immediately.”

    Ator, a 5-6 attacker and midfielder, has recorded 90 goals and 37 assists in three seasons at Hudson High School, where she is a team captain and two-time all-district performer. The 2003 Academic All-American plans to study journalism and advertising at Ohio. She is described by Brew as being “a very quick player who has excellent moves on the field.”

    Diehl is a 5-8 midfielder who “has the speed and strength that will make her an excellent defender,” according to Brew. As a team captain during her junior year, she helped lead Westminster High School to the regional semifinals and was named second team all-county for her efforts. Diehl is a high honor roll student who also serves as her class president.

    Dow has provided 90 goals and 75 assists over her three-year career at Walt Whitman High School, where she has lettered in four different sports (soccer, basketball, swimming and lacrosse). After recording 46 goals and 34 assists while leading her team to county and regional titles as a junior, the 5-6 midfielder earned first-team all-county accolades and was named a team captain for the 2004 season.

    “Devon will be a threat for us because she sees the field so well,” said Brew about the intended advertising major. “She has a great stick and can assist as well as score goals.”

    As a 5-6 midfielder, Fasick scored 18 goals and eight assists as a team captain her junior year. She helped lead Liberty High School to the regional semifinals in 2003 and to county and conference championships and the Maryland state quarterfinals as a sophomore. “Kari is a true midfielder who will be a force on both ends of the field,” said Brew about the honor roll student and potential business major.

    Hadaway “is one of the hardest working players out there who creates plays all over the field,” according to Brew. The 5-3 midfielder helped lead her team to a county championship and the regional finals and plans on studying pediatric nursing at Ohio. As a four-year starter and two-time team MVP in soccer, Hadaway also guided Severna Park High School to three state titles in that sport.

    The goalie in the group is Heup, who has started every game since the beginning of her freshman season at South River High School. The intended advertising major holds a 60 percent career save percentage and has guided her team to the state championship game. “Jen is quick and solid in the cage,” said Brew, “and her composure and confidence are her key traits.”

    Marshall has recorded 55 goals, 50 assists and 35 interceptions in her two varsity seasons so far at Hilliard Davidson High School. The 5-4 midfielder and defender is a first-team all-district performer who has twice led her squad into the state quarterfinals. “Lindsey is a great communicator and powerful force down low,” said Brew about Marshall, who plans on majoring in international studies.

    As a 5-8 midfielder and defender, Roguski is a three-time first-team all-county selection. Along with fellow Bobcat signee Fasick, she has guided Liberty High School to county and regional titles in the Maryland state playoffs. “Julie is going to excel in the college game because she is a natural athlete with strength and a good knowledge of the game,” according to Brew.

    Sullivan has accounted for 92 goals and 76 assists over the past three seasons playing alongside Heup at South River High School. The 5-2 attacker is a two-time all-county selection in both lacrosse and field hockey. In addition to helping her lacrosse team reach the state finals, Sullivan also won a Maryland state title as a defender with the South River field hockey squad.

    “Frannie is a natural goal scorer,” said Brew about the intended psychology or sports medicine major. “She is the player who wants the ball in critical situations.”
