Women's Lacrosse Signs Two Recruits for 1998-99

NOTRE DAME, Ind. ---- Notre Dame women's lacrosse coach Tracy Coyne has announced the signing of two recruits for the 1998-99 seasons. Rachel Turk (Ambler, Pa.) and Kathryn Lam (Plainsboro, N.J.) have signed national letters of intent to attend Notre Dame beginning in the fall of '98.

Turk, a member of the United States Women's Lacrosse Association (USWLA) National Tournament Team, was a Montgomery County all-area honorable mention selection as a junior at defense. She also earned Suburban I all-league honorable mention honors in her junior season at Wissahickon. In addition, Turk received the Most Improved Player award at the end of the season.

"Rachel will be the anchor to our defense," Coyne says. "She will come in and make an immediate impact. Rachel is a strong athlete with good size. She has good composure when bringing the ball out of the defensive end and clears the ball well. Her instincts are good in the critical goal-scoring area."

Lam, who has only played organized lacrosse for two seasons, was a second-team New Jersey all-state selection as a junior and first-team all-Colonial Valley Conference honoree last year. She also was named to the USWLA National Tournament Team for New Jersey. Lam garnered most improved defensive layers accolades.

A three-sport athlete and all-conference selection in lacrosse, soccer and basketball at West Windsor-Plainsboro, Lam will captain the lacrosse, soccer and basketball teams in her final scholastic campaign and is an all-conference honoree in all three sports. She earned all-state accolades in soccer as she led her team into the state semifinals . Lam also was named to the Mercer County Big 33 All Star team.

She garnered MVP honors in basketball last season, leading the team in both assists and steals. "Kathryn has unlimited potential," Coyne says. "She's is considered one of the top defenders. Kathryn has a great work ethic and is an intense player. She's a great fit for Notre Dame and our program. Kathryn has just begun to develop as a player and will get better with each and every season."
