I drove on up to Whitney Point to join the celebration of one of the top field hockey players in the area.
Senior Amy Stevens signed her National Letter of Intent to play Division I field hockey at Lock Haven University.
Stevens was joined by a large crowd of supporters including family, friends, and teammates.
Amy’s accolades are lengthy, both on the field and in the classroom.
She has been a part of five consecutive state championships in field hockey.
She also was named to the state’s all-tournament team this past season and played in the National Futures Tournament three different years.
Stevens also played basketball and lacrosse, being named a First-Team All-Star in both sports.
Amy has excelled in her academics as well, boasting a 95.77 GPA, ranking her second in her graduating class.
She has maintained the status of High Honors throughout high school.
After making it official, I asked Amy about what attracted her to Lock Haven.
“When I first went on the campus, it felt immediately like home. I walked through it and I just, I felt comfortable there. After meeting with the coaches, they were just so nice and so welcoming. So that really influenced me. Then, meeting my potential teammates, they also had that same welcoming aspect. Being able to pursuit what major I wanted to do was really another big part of why I chose Lock Haven,” she says.
Amy is planning on receiving her Doctorate in Physical Therapy when she gets to Lock Haven.
Congratulations to Amy and her family, and best of luck in the future.
