Harley takes trip to UPenn

Posted by: on December 17, 2014

Last weekend Bryn Harley participated in the UPenn winter camp.  Bryn and 50 other girls were invited to the camp based on there performances over the summer for there receptive travel teams. While at one of her tournaments Bryn was spotted by one of the assistant coaches of UPenn’s Women Lacrosse team and invited to the camp. Once Bryn and the rest of the girls arrived at the camp they were divided into teams in order to compete and train over the weekend. After the first day of the camp Bryn and two other girls were grabbed by an assistant coach and showed around the campus.  While they were being shown around they were invited to have lunch with the Athletic director and the rest of the coaching staff. After lunch they all went to visit with an academic counselor to talk about a future major they may be interested in. Bryn who is a sophomore at St. Anthony’s High School and a girls lacrosse player, says that the entire experience was great and very exciting. Finally the girls returned to the rest of the camp and on the last day played games for four straight hours. Before leaving the camp the assistant coach informed Bryn that they would be sending a coach to come see her play in the upcoming spring lacrosse season. Bryn has been training with us for over four years now and we are all so excited to see her get the recognition she deserves. Keep training and playing hard and good things will come. Check out Bryn in one of our many client commercials.
