Megan Hummel signs her National Letter of Intent to play womens lacrosse at Coastal Carolina University next fall.

On November 8, Megan Hummel signed her National Letter of Intent to play women’s lacrosse for Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina. 

Hummel is a three-sport athlete. She plays volleyball, basketball and lacrosse. Throughout her time at Linganore High School, Hummel dedicated her time and effort into each sport while still balancing academics. She decided to continue her athletic career with lacrosse, deciding to play the sport in college. 

Hummel had been offered many college opportunities, but felt Coastal Carolina like the best fit. For Hummel, it was important to feel completely comfortable and accepted by a welcoming team. When she had met the coaches and the team, that’s exactly how she felt. That is when she knew Coastal Carolina was the right fit for her. 

For Hummel to have achieved her goals, it was important to have inspiration and supporters who always believed in her. 

“My biggest supporters were my parents, my brother and the club coach, Brigid Scanlon,” said Hummel. 

Every single one of Hummel’s supporters held her up and prepared her to soon start a new journey on her own. Hummel’s family is beyond proud of her academic achievements and thrilled to see all four years of hard work paying off. Her parents are sad to see her leave the house, knowing that without her jokes and the way she lightens up the house, it will feel almost empty with their daughter gone.

“It’s going to be very quiet,” Hummel’s mom, Shayna Webb, said.

With more advanced classes and programs in college, it can be nerve wracking for a student-athlete to balance school work and a higher level of lacrosse than one is used to. Webb believes her daughter will have no struggle. 

“Meg is the most organized person I have ever met on this planet, and she is very driven,” said Webb. “If she wants it, she’s going to get it.” 

Hummel not only has support from her family and friends but from her coach, Dean Coccia, as well. From the beginning, Coccia was beyond impressed with Hummel’s confidence on the field and as a strong defender. 

“The thing about Meg is that she never stops,” said Coccia. “She has an engine that never quits.” 

Anyone that knows Hummel knows that her work ethic and drive make her a leader in every light, both on and off the field.

Hummel is undecided on her major at Coastal Carolina, but she is concidering pursuing studies in exercise science.
