Seminole Ridge High School senior Tara Larson recently signed an athletic scholarship letter of intent to play lacrosse for Emmanuel College in Georgia.
“I think I’ll be a great fit for their program,” Larson said. “I’ll be a great addition to the midfield position. I’ve got an open mind to new ideas and plays, and I’ll to everything in my ability to help lead the team to victory.”
Larson, who scored a record 79 goals this season, is the second player to receive a lacrosse scholarship from Seminole Ridge this year and will be joining her sister Haley, a 2012 SRHS graduate, on the Lions’ squad.
Haley Larson was the first player from SRHS to earn a lacrosse scholarship.
“I am really excited to play collegiate lacrosse, and extremely happy to have the opportunity to play with my sister,” she said. “She’s my best friend, and we have a great connection on the field.”
