FloridaLacrosseNews.com recently caught up with Jane Bunn (2012), Creekside High School’s Goalkeeper (2011 save stats: 61% 152/251, free position saves: 83% 29/35) and a member of XTeam 2012 Black. We discussed her recent commitment to St. Anselm College in New Hampshire and her thoughts on the upcoming spring high school lacrosse season:
IFL: What made St Anselm such an attractive choice?
Being a northeast native, I always knew that I wanted to go back up there for college. It was just a matter of what school was the best fit for me in that area. Saint Anselm has one of the most gorgeous campuses I’ve ever seen, so the environment was a check.
When I was up there on my first visit, the coach was extremely energetic, so I knew right off the bat that we would get along. She was really easy to talk to and I loved her vibe overall. The moment I walked out of her office, there were about 10 girls from the team standing there to introduce themselves. It is a recruits dream to feel that welcome at a school. During our tour, a few girls from the team showed me different dorms, the dining hall, and lastly — the hockey rink. I starred at the shiny white ice and began to envision myself going to games and having the time of my life. It was then that the picture was complete and Saint Anselm felt like a second home.
IFL: What other schools did you consider?
Boston College, Boston University, Holy Cross, and FSU were my top four other schools.
IFL: What surprised you most about the recruiting process?
What surprised me the most was the speed of the process. You know you hear all about how “the process is so much faster today”, but there is a ton of truth to that statement which you can only experience firsthand if you are a recruit.
