WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (May 5, 2014) – William and Mary lacrosse standout Hannah Clarke was recently selected to participate in the NCAA Career in Sports Forum (CSF), which is an annual four-day event that brings together student-athletes from around the nation to learn about careers in sports.
The selection process for the national event is highly competitive, as just 200 student-athletes earned invitations. This year’s CSF will be held June 5-8 at the NCAA national office in Indianapolis, Ind.
"I am so incredibly honored and humbled to have been selected to attend the NCAA Career in Sports Forum this coming June,” Clarke said. “I am eager to learn as much as I can about pursuing a career in collegiate coaching, and I can't think of a better opportunity and start to my career!"
Participants are provided with an education opportunity that provides valuable exposure to careers in intercollegiate athletics. The CSF is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their careers in the business and give participants the unique opportunity to network and learn from current athletics professionals.
Clarke earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and health sciences and plans to pursue a career in collegiate coaching.
One of the league’s top defenders this season, Clarke ranked fifth in the CAA with 2.0 ground balls per game en route to earning second-team all-conference honors. In addition to leading the team in ground balls (32), she also ranked tied for second on the squad with 22 caused turnovers this spring. The Houston, Texas native finished her career with 43 caused turnovers, which was just three shy of earning a spot in W&M’s all-time top-10 list.
