Despite graduating the night before, Kate Ward '16 came back to CJ on Tuesday, May 24 to sign her letter of intent to play lacrosse at Transylvania University.
"I really liked the campus when I went to visit," Ward explained. "When I stayed the night, I got to meet with the team and the coaches. Their sense of community was similar to CJ."
Ward, who lettered all four years in lacrosse, also earned Academic All-Ohio honors in 2014 and 2015 (2016 honors will be released later this summer) and was named a Scholar Athlete at the recent CJ Honor Awards.
"Kate's strong work ethic was not restricted only to her academic studies, but also to lacrosse," said Women's Head Lacrosse Coach Danielle Cash. "She has been, and continues to be, one of my most dedicated and aggressive players."
Ward said she is still undecided about what she will study at Transylvania University, but she is looking forward to playing on the same team again as her sister, Julie '14, who signed to play lacrosse at Transylvania University in April 2014.
"It will be exciting to play with her there," Ward shared.
Coach Cash added, "We will miss you Kate, but we know you will succeed in all that you do at Transy, both on and off the field."
