Hammond High School (MD) 2016 midfielder Zoe Pekins has made a verbal commitment to play Division I lacrosse at University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Zoe Pekins profile:
High School: Hammond High School, MD
Graduation Year: 2016
College Choice: UMBC
Club Affiliation: Anchor Lacrosse Club
Lacrosse Honors: Second team All-County
What will you major in/study? Molecular Biology or Business and Media Communications
Why did you choose UMBC? “I chose UMBC, one because of the coaches, and two because of the atmosphere I feel every time I step on campus. Whenever I go to UMBC I already feel like a college student. The team and coaches make the recruits feel like they are already on the team.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “Hammond should be able to compete very well this upcoming season. We have a brand new schedule with teams we have never played before and incoming freshman with a lot of talent. Also we are returning a lot of great players which is a huge bonus for this year.”
Thank You: “First, of course, I would like to thank my parents for the hours they have given up for me and my siblings to do what we love. I owe a huge thank you to my high school coaches Smitty, Coach K, and Coach Holly for pushing me ever since my freshman year.
“Lastly, my club coaches for getting my name in the recruiting spotlight and giving me so many options for college lacrosse. Without any of these people I would not be where I am today.”
Other schools considered: Colgate, Stevenson, Ithaca, North Central, Salisbury, and High Point
