The girls lacrosse scene continues to grow and improve as evidenced by another Utah player committing to play at the next level. Annie Glenn from Skyline has chosen to take her talents to Bowdoin University in Maine. The Polar Bears play at the NCAA D-III level, but for Glenn, her decision wasn’t easy.
“At first I didn’t know what I wanted in a school,” said Glenn. “Do I want a small school or big school? Division I, II, or III? I thought at first I was drawn to play at a Division I school. However, I didn’t want lacrosse to be my sole college experience and that’s why I decided on a Division III school.”
Glenn chose Bowdoin because of it’s location, size and reputation. Utahns Sophie Janes (Olympus) and Katie Coleman (Park City) also play there and helped sell the school to Glenn. Glenn also looked at Claremont, Denver, St. Mary’s, Vassar and Puget Sound.
“It’s one of the ‘little Ivies’ which are a group of small liberal arts colleges in the Northeast,” said Glenn. “It’s very outdoorsy with a lot to offer the students and has an excellent reputation.”
Glenn has played lacrosse since the end of her 6th Grade year. Her friend, Anna Ferreira played and got Glenn hooked. Glenn is a standout player at Skyline who also plays with Mamaci and has been on the Utah/Idaho National Team.

Glenn offers these tips to other players who want to play at the next level.
1. The best way to play college lacrosse is just to get yourself out there. I went to many tournaments throughout the years and made sure the coaches I wanted to see me were there.
2. Also go to camps! If you want to play on the west coast I suggest going to Western Winners. Most west coast colleges go to this camp and I had a great experience meeting many of the western coaches. Also if you are set on one specific school make sure to go to their camp if they have one that’s what I did with Bowdoin and it really paid off. Camps are the best way for coaches to see you because at tournaments they may not always see your best game, but at a camp they see you for a week.
3. My best advice is to not give up! Everyone can play in college if you really want to! It just takes time and effort to keep your name in front of coaches.
Glenn will join the Polar Bears in the fall after graduating this year.
