Senior Jenna Lutz, who committed to play Division III basketball at Allegheny College, said she put academics first in her choice.
“I picked Allegheny because I loved the campus and the people there first,” Lutz said. “They also have a great environmental science program, and that is what I am going to major in.”
Lutz, who has been playing basketball since she was in third grade, said that earlier in high school, she did not necessarily envision herself playing at the college level. Now she is excited to become a part of Allegheny’s team.
“I could never imagine myself playing for another team” besides Baldwin, Lutz said, describing how she felt earlier. Now, though, “This sport has really become a part of my life,” she said.
Lutz enjoyed Monday’s celebration with her teammates and her family.
“My family and teammates have really pushed me the past couple years because this has been a goal of mine since freshman year,” she said. “The hard work has paid off. I was so happy they were all there to celebrate with me.”
