McKinney Lacrosse Club is excited to announce that Varsity Girls team member Megan Carney has accepted an athletic scholarship offer and verbally committed to play NCAA Division I Lacrosse at Syracuse University in 2018. Under the guidance of Head Coach Gary Gait, Syracuse is currently ranked No. 3 in the country and has made it to the NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Final Four the last two years.
Carney started playing lacrosse with the McKinney boy’s 3/4 team in 2009. McKinney’s girl’s program started in 2010, at which time Carney played girl’s lacrosse while still playing on the boy’s team. Throughout the spring season of 2011, Carney played solely for the girl’s 5/6 team. During her first year with the McKinney Girls Varsity team, the team advanced and won the 2015 Division II Texas State Championship. She was also named to the 2015 Texas All-State Team.
Megan Carney is currently a sophomore at John Paul II High School in Plano where she plays on the Varsity Volleyball Team.
Previous Division I commits from the McKinney Lacrosse Club include 2016 Avery Reding (Radford), 2016 Sean Hurley (Army), 2016 Cameron Close (Denver), 2016 Johnny Santos (VMI) and 2017 Anna Keebler (Liberty).
