A lacrosse player described by her coach as “on fire,” signed with Catawba College on April 24 during a special ceremony at the Williston Northampton School.
Kirstyn Kruse ’13 signed a National Letter of Intent to play Division II lacrosse at the North Carolina school, fulfilling what her mother, Susan Kruse, said had been a dream since she started playing the sport at age seven.
“She loves the sport,” Mrs. Kruse said. “She’s been playing lacrosse since she was a little girl and she’s always wanted to play at the college level.”
Head coach Jen Fulcher described Ms. Kruse as a key member of the team and a great leader on and off the field. Ms. Fulcher noted that Ms. Kruse had been on a hot streak recently, scoring four goals with two assists in a recent game against Westminster.
“She is kind, funny, hardworking, and her teammates love being around her,” Ms. Fulcher said. “She will leave a huge hole as a person and an athlete after she graduates.”
