BERLIN- Three Worcester Prep scholar athletes last week signed letters of intent to take their respective games to the next level, including two standout players from the girls’ varsity lacrosse team and an exceptional golfer.
During a special signing event at the Berlin private school last Friday, Worcester Prep’s Molly Dickerson accepted an offer to attend school and play lacrosse next year at Loyola University in Baltimore, while teammate Sara Noyes accepted a similar offer from High Point University in North Carolina. Worcester’s all-everything golfer Christina Vosters also signed a letter of intent accepting an offer from Penn State University.
Dickerson, a senior who will lead the Mallards’ attack next spring, will head off to Loyola University next fall. Dickerson currently has 48 goals and 42 assists with a full season to go at Worcester and attracted attention from several schools. She was named to the first-team All-ESIAC team and the first-team All-Bayside South conference teams last season.
Dickerson was also a member of the U.S. Lacrosse National Team-Eastern Shore and earned second-team All-ESIAC honors as a freshman and sophomore at Worcester. Dickerson also plays basketball and soccer at Worcester and is a member of the National Honor Society. She plays three sports at Worcester, but her first love has always been lacrosse. Dickerson said last week she is excited about the prospects of playing at Loyola next year.
“There were some other Division I schools interested, but Loyola just seems like the perfect fit for me for a lot of reasons,” she said. “It’s a great program with a lot of great players, so I don’t know how much of an impact I’ll get a chance to make as a freshman next year.”
While Dickerson is heading to a long-established program in the hotbed of college lacrosse in Baltimore, Noyes is taking a different route to the next level. Noyes chose High Point in North Carolina for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the program will be playing its inaugural season next year and she will have the opportunity to be a part of the program from the beginning.
“I had a lot of options and opportunities, but I ultimately chose High Point because I’ll have the chance to step right in and be a part of something special,” she said. “It’s a first-year program with a bunch of girls just like me trying to build a program for the future.”
Noyes anchors the center midfield position for the Mallards and has been playing for 10 years. She earned first team All-ESIAC and first-team All-Bayside South honors last year and was runner-up for conference player of the year. She is also a member of the National Art Honor Society and referees for the Beach Lacrosse program. She also taught at the Cedar Chapel School here in Worcester County.
Worcester Prep’s standout golfer Christina Vosters, who just collected her third straight ESIAC player of the year award, is also taking her game to the next level after accepting a scholarship offer from Penn State. In addition to the countless accolades she earned as a high school athlete at Worcester, she has also collected numerous amateur golf championships throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
