BEREA, Ohio - As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the nation and the world, the Baldwin Wallace University Athletic Department and women's lacrosse team want to take the time to recognize the hard work and dedication of its six senior student-athletes.
Erika Davidson, Savanna Jaekle, Brie Martineau, Jordan Paugh, Ireland Flores Rae, and Hannah Stein saw their final season come to an abrupt end on March 11 when the Ohio Athletic Conference and NCAA canceled the remainder of the spring season and in doing so, the Senior Day recognition they deserved.
While the NCAA has extended another year of eligibility, it is uncertain if each of these student-athlete will come back for another season or continue down their career path. So, the University administration, faculty and staff congratulates these six young women on their outstanding athletic and academic careers as well as their leadership to the women's lacrosse program. The University would like to wish each of them all the best of luck in their future endeavors and hope that even after graduation that they come back and visit us often. They will always be a Yellow Jacket for Life (YJ4L).
