FENWICK- Maggie Allison, a senior at Indian River High, this week signed a national letter of intent to play Division I lacrosse at Towson University last week, which is somewhat remarkable in that her school does not currently offer girls’ varsity lacrosse.
Allison has played the last eight years for the Sea Bay Lacrosse Club based in Ocean City. The club features some of the top young female players from all over the resort area and across the Lower Shore. Many of the Sea Bay Lacrosse Club players attend Stephen Decatur, Worcester Prep and other high schools on the Lower Shore.
Allison is a senior at Indian River, but unlike many of her teammates, she did not have the opportunity to show off her impressive skills at the high school level. A decision to add girls’ varsity lacrosse is currently under consideration by the Indian River school board. The board was presented with a proposal in September, but has yet to make a decision. Meanwhile, Allison has made the impressive leap from a club and travel team to tradition-rich Division I Towson.
