Abby's Story … I found Lees-McRae through a college day in high school and found out that they had soccer and pre-vet. I came on a recruiting trip for soccer and loved the campus, the people, and the surroundings. When I got here I played soccer for the first season and then was asked to play lacrosse, so I thought I'd try it. I found I loved this sport just as much as soccer, and so now I'm playing both sports. This is difficult at times, but well worth it.
