St. Margaret’s freshman Campbell Case has committed to play NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse at Johns Hopkins University. Case’s 64 points (41g, 23a) was fifth-best on the Tartans’ high-powered offense this year.
“I chose Johns Hopkins because of the atmosphere of the team and majors offered,” Case said by email. “I loved how the team was like a family and how enthusiastic and motivated the coaching staff is. A small campus and student body has always appealed to me so it was perfect. Not only was it just the campus, but I love Baltimore and how close it is to other big cities.”
St. Margaret’s coach Holly Reilly has known Case for four years and she thinks the Blue Jays are very fortunate to have landed Case.
“I met Campbell Case four years ago,” Reilly said by email. “From the beginning, it was clear she possessed a special flair for the game. During training, Campbell constantly pushed the limits of traditional lacrosse. Campbell’s creativity is not an accident, it has been deliberately practiced. Campbell’s love for the game coupled with her desire to be a distinguished attacker makes her one of the most innovative players. Campbell has fun with the game and stretches her potential and that of her teammates by taking risks and incorporating higher level skills into her repertoire. We are excited and proud of Campbell’s recent commitment to Johns Hopkins University. While Campbell still has an aspiring high school lacrosse career to look forward to, the Blue Jays are fortunate to acquire such a savvy, distinctive player. Go Campbell!”
With her college decision now behind her, Case is ready to focus on bringing a championship to the Tartans.
“Some of my goals for my remaining time at St. Margaret’s would be to win Orange County playoffs, lead the team in assists and be the best teammate I can be.”
“There are so many people who have helped me get to where I am,” she continued. “First, I would like to thank my coaches: Glen Miles, Holly Reilly, Rebecca Kingsbury, Lauren Ciccomascolo, Nick Tintle and Kaitlin Doucette for all their help in the process and developing me as a player. Next, I would like to thank my family who have supported me in every possible way. I would also like to thank my past and present teammates for motivating and inspiring me. Additionally, I would like to thank Coach Janine Tucker and all of the Hopkins Coaching staff for giving me this opportunity. And most of all, I would like to thank Grace Gavin, who has believed in me and introduced me to such an amazing school and program.”
