Four Hill alumni have achieved great success this spring on their respective lacrosse teams. Three alumnae from The Hill made it on to the All-Conference teams for the Centennial Conference. Shannon Summers ’05 of Franklin & Marshall earned first team honors while teammate Ashley Bevington ’05 earned an honorable mention. Sarah Brant ’06 of Ursinus College was awarded a spot on the second team.
In addition, Shannon and Ashley became NCAA champions for the second time in three years when Franklin & Marshall defeated Salisbury 11-10 in overtime on May 17, 2009. Read an article that appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer about Shannon and Ashley's success.
On the men’s side, Ken Clausen ’06 made first team All-American for the second year in a row. Ken, one of the best defenders in the country, helped lead Virginia to its second straight final four berth and the NCAA tournament’s top seed.
Ken also continues to make an impact off the field. He has been selling shirts to raise money for Evanfest, a lacrosse festival memorializing Evan Brady, a Malvern Prep graduate who died of bone cancer in 2005. Last season, he cut his hair for Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that donates hairpieces to youth suffering medical hair loss.
