Goalkeep Ellie Glawe will continue her lacrosse career at Division II West Virginia school, Shepherd University.

Goalie coach Breanna Wade said, “She really cares and has a passion. She was always so nice to the players, and always asks them what do you want me to do to support you.”

Attending Shepherd has been in the back of Ellie’s mind from a young age. When she was 10 years old, she attended a camp at the university. There she fell in love not only with the school, but also the town.

Recently, she had went up to Shepherd for a visit. The positive team environment made her decision to attend Shepherd final.

Jenny Cavey, the head coach of the girls lacrosse team at Shepherd, lead the Rams to 11 wins with only 6 losses and 1 tie for the 2019 season.

Glawe feels that club lacrosse on the 3D Maryland Lacrosse team was an important part in the college search. It allowed her to see different college coaches and get recruited.

Her mom, Carla Glawe said, “We were so excited that the Shepherd coach had reached out to her this last summer. We wish Ellie a successful lacrosse career, but most importantly a great pathway to her end goal–becoming a teacher.”

At Shepherd, Glawe hopes to major in elementary education and eventually become a second grade teacher.
