Ten student-athletes will join the Presbyterian College lacrosse team as part of the 2021 signing class.

They are Nya Bettis (Lawrenceville, Ga.), Gillian Craig (Merritt Island, Fla.), Lily Clawson (Buford, Ga.), Willow Hammond (Johns Creek, Ga.), Ellie Lewis (Bozeman, Montana.), Sarah Maier (Evans, Ga.), Michaela Paredes (Reisterstown, Md.), MacKenzie Partsch (Exeter, Pa.), Jocelyn Smestad (Branford, Conn.) and Olivia Staas (Midlothian, Va.).

"I am incredibly optimistic about the 2021 recruiting class,” said 2nd-year coach Eric Clakeley. “They have the talent and athleticism needed to help to continue to propel this program forward. The class of 10-plus will bolster our depth at every position, as well as put our roster size in a more competitive range. It is all a process but we are excited about this step.”
