Flynn to Temple

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 by Katie McDonald in Sports

Freedom senior lacrosse player Katie Flynn signed a National Letter of Intent on Nov. 13 to play lacrosse at Temple University.

“Everything the coaches were saying and how they were willing to help me, I knew it was the right place for me,” Flynn said.

It was September of Flynn’s junior year when she was contacted by the Temple Owls whose head coach is Bonnie Rosen. Flynn had a tour of the campus in December, and a week later, she was made an offer.

“They wanted me to love Temple for Temple. I felt at home there, and everything is so up-to-date,” said Flynn, who then had an official visit this fall.

Flynn’s future teammates told her that playing lacrosse for Rosen and her staff is amazing and that the coaches want the best for their athletes.

“I’m looking forward to the team and the coaches and the energy, and how the coaches are so into it for the kids,” Flynn said. “I definitely think they will repeat [a good season] and that the incoming freshmen will help.”

Flynn’s parents are Enan and Brian, who is also Freedom’s assistant girls’ soccer coach. Flynn played both soccer and lacrosse all four years of high school.

“I feel like I’m better at lacrosse. I put my heart into lacrosse,” said Flynn, an attack player. “I started playing in fifth grade, and I fell in love with it.”
