Livingston Commits to Transylvania University

For the second year in a row, a women's lacrosse player will continue her athletic career at Transylvania University.

Olivia Livingston '17 committed to playing for the Pioneers on Wednesday, December 14.

"They had what I wanted and they have a great lacrosse program," Livingston said.

Livingston noted that she's looking forward to playing lacrosse with former Eagles, Kate '16 and Julie '14 Ward, as well as teammates from a summer lacrosse program.

"I played for Velocity Lacrosse in Cincinnati and four or five of us committed to Transylvania," Livingston explained.

Along with Velocity Lacrosse, last year Livingston was selected to represent the U.S. with  American International Sports Teams and traveled to England and Scotland.

"During the years I have known Olivia, I have been proud to be her coach at CJ," said head women's lacrosse coach Danielle Cash. "She has been, and continues to be, one of my most dedicated players."

Livingston, who is a member of NHS and has received several academic awards including Academic All-Ohio by the U.S. Lacrosse Association, plans to study Anthropology.
