Congratulations to Philly Blast 2019 and Academy of Notre Dame de Namur defender, Lindsey Barnes, on her verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at High Point University!
“My favorite part of Philly Blast is that every coach, no matter if they are your team’s coach or not, cares for your individual needs as a player. Everyone on the staff is so helpful and welcoming. We are always challenged to be our best selves in this program, and I am so happy I play for such a unique team!”
In addition to playing for Philly Blast in Summer 2016, Lindsey was also selected for and competed in the Under Armour All American Underclass Tournament (Philly Command), National Tournament (Philly 3) and Brine All American Tournament. During the recruiting process, Lindsey was also considering Fairfield, Lafayette, Drexel, Quinnipiac and Mount Saint Mary’s. Ultimately, Lindsey decided on Big South power house, High Point University.
“I chose High Point because of the amazing mix of academics and athletics. You can do what you love while also receiving an education at the highest level. As I walked on campus for the first time, I knew it was where I wanted to be. Everyone was so welcoming and enthusiastic about their school and program.”
