Webster Schroeder (N.Y.) 2016 attack Kennedy Walters has made a verbal commitment to play Division II lacrosse at Gannon University.
Kennedy Walters profile:
High School: Webster Schroeder, N.Y.
Graduation Year: 2016
College Choice: Gannon University
Club Affiliation: Relentless Hustle
Intended major: Criminal justice and psychology
Why did you choose Gannon? “Gannon University has great academic achievement and I hope to be able to learn from everything it has to offer. The school is beautiful and the lacrosse program will help me learn on and off the field.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016: “Webster Schroeder will come into the season strong and ready to play. Most teams underestimate the abilities and team work that we will have. As a senior I hope to lead the team to many victories. We have an extremely strong senior class with four girls with lacrosse scholarships. Our underclass man is a very strong group with numerous girls committed to play at the Division 1 level. We hope to pull ourselves out of the hole that we dug ourselves into last year and come out fighting.
Thank You: “I’d like to thank my coaches for everything that they have done:
Coach Coleman- thank you for allowing my to be a part of the varsity team since freshman year. I was able to learn and grow through all these years and will take the skills that I learned onto college. I could not have done everything that I have achieve with out your guidance.
Coach Klein – Thank you for welcoming me onto your team when I was in the 8th grade. I came into Relentless Hustle as a timid player and very held back. You were able to teach me the confidence that I needed on and off the field. The skill set that you were able to provide built my base and improved my skills ever practice.
“I’d also like to thank my parents:
Mom – thank you for always being the supportive mother that you are. You are always believing in me and everything that I wanted to do in my life. You are a true inspiration to me and I hope to be half the woman that you are. Thank you for always coming to my lacrosse and volleyball games. Thank you for picking me up everyday for months from practice so I wouldn’t have to walk home. Thank you for waiting 45 minutes after every game so that the team could take even though you have been sitting in the cold for 2 hours. Thank you for all the time and money that you out toward me and my sports, whether it be lacrosse, volleyball or track.
Dad – thank you for everything that you have done for me for the last 18 years of my life. You and Colin were what pushed me into playing the sport that I, today, cannot live with out. Thank you for driving me up and down the East Coast for lacrosse tournaments, college visits, and clinics. Thank you for driving to Maryland at 3 in the morning because I wanted to go to the senior ball but had to be in Maryland for a tournament. Thank you for driving my butt all around Webster because the team couldn’t choose a place to get dinner after the game. Thank you for being the perfect lacrosse dad and never questioning the coach and knowing when to give advice or when not to give advice. Thank you to the best parents a girl could ask for.”
