Upper Perk Lacrosse Players Announce College Choices
Written by Bradley Schlegel Correspondent

Upper Perk senior lacrosse players making college commitments this past week were, left to right, Regan McComb, Morgan Rynn, Jenna Wismer, Alyssa Long and head coach Susan Flack.

        In three seasons, Regan McComb has emerged as a standout goalkeeper for Upper Perkiomen's lacrosse team. In the spring of 2017 at Coastal Carolina, a Division I program in South Carolina, McComb hopes to take her game to another level. 

        "I really like lacrosse, and I don't think I would ever get bored with the sport," said the senior. "It's something I'm interested in being a part of."

        On Nov. 11, McComb and three other classmates announced their commitment to play lacrosse in college.  McComb, a three-year letter winner and a two-year starter for the Indians, will compete for the Chanticleers in Conway, SC.

        Morgan Rynn, a three-year starter and two-time, first team selection in the Pioneer Athletic Conference, will attend George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

        Jenna Wismer, a three-year starter at defense, will continue her career at Lock Haven University.

Alyssa Long, an attacker/midfielder who started the last two seasons, will play at Goucher College, a Division III school in Towson, MD.

        "I couldn't be more thrilled to see these girls move on to play at the next level," said Susan Flack, Upper Perkiomen's head lacrosse coach. "I've coached them from the time they were in fifth grade. This doesn't happen all the time, and it's not going to happen around here again for a while."

        McComb, who originally committed to play for coach Kristen Selvage at Lock Haven, decided to follow Selvage to Costal Carolina when she was hired to lead the Chanticleers.

        The player said he welcomed the level of dedication likely required to compete in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Flack compared the lacrosse commitment at most Division I schools to a job. 

        "Regan is ready," said Flack, adding that McComb would likely benefit from working with a goalkeeper coach. "She's not going to shy away from anything."

        Rynn, an attacker and midfielder for Upper Perkiomen, said she chose George Mason for the academic and professional opportunities it presents, as well as its proximity to Washington, DC.

        In terms of lacrosse, Rynn said the impact of Patriots head coach Jessy Morgan will motivate her to be a better player.  "Morgan is a very skilled, aggressive, talented player," Flack said of Rynn, a second-team all-PAC-10 selection as a junior. "She's going to have an impact right away at that level."

        Long chose Goucher College, a small, private liberal arts college in suburban Baltimore, because of its excellent academic environment. She added that Gophers lacrosse coach Ceri Miller told her she would receive significant playing time.  "I have a lot to prove at that program," Long said. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity. I think I can really add to it."

        Wismer chose Lock Haven, in part, due to its relatively small class size.  "It's been my first choice since my freshman year," she said.

        On the field, Flack described Wismer, a three-year starter for the Indians, as a valuable defender.  "Jenna is a tough defender who knows where to be and how to direct the rest of the defense," the coach said.
