The Baltimore Sun Highlights WLAX’s Ali Brennan
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – There are few collegiate athletes that have successfully crossed over from one collegiate sport to another. There are even fewer athletes that have crossed over who have enjoyed the same success as Jacksonville University’s women’s lacrosse’s Ali Brennan.
Recently, The Baltimore Sun, Maryland’s flagship newspaper, wrote a feature on Brennan’s four year career with the University of Miami’s soccer program and her current stint with the Dolphins.
Hailing from Columbia, Maryland, Brennan was a top athlete at McDonough High School where she was a four-time letter winner in both soccer and basketball and a two-time letter winner in lacrosse. The defender was offered scholarships to play soccer at Maryland, South Carolina, Navy and Florida but chose to commit to Miami and quickly became a top-notch defender for the Canes.
When she finished her soccer career at UM, she wasn't quite ready to give up college sports and exercised her fifth year of eligibility at JU.
Though injuries have lately plagued Brennan, she was highly instrumental in the Dolphins capturing their second Atlantic Sun championship this past Sunday. On the season, she has played in 14 games and has recorded 10 goals, four assists, 24 draws, 12 ground balls and four caused turnovers.
