Baylor Lacrosse Players Sign With Asbury

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Asbury University women’s lacrosse officially has its first Tennessee recruits on board.

Rachel Manieri and Erin Garmany, seniors at the Baylor School in Chattanooga, signed letters of intent Tuesday to join Asbury’s inaugural women’s lacrosse team, scheduled to begin play in 2014-15.

“They are very talented, similar players,” said Rich Manieri, Asbury head coach, who also coached both girls while an assistant at Baylor.  “They are tremendous athletes with great speed and they can play anywhere on the field.  Because of their speed, they can be very difficult to play against.  Plus, they are great kids.”

Rachel Manieri, the daughter of Asbury’s head coach, and Garmany have been part of a very successful Baylor program that went to the Tennessee state playoffs two consecutive years and made it to the final eight in 2012.  Garmany also plans to run cross country at Asbury.  The two girls also happen to be best friends.

“I’m very excited to be going to Asbury,” said Garmany.  “I looked at other schools but this was an opportunity that was too good to pass up.”

“I loved Asbury the first time I saw the campus,” said Rachel Manieri.  “I knew right away this is where I wanted to be.”

Asbury women’s lacrosse continues to recruit for the 2014-15 season.  The program has cast a wide net, already signing or securing commitments from recruits in Kentucky, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Virginia, and Tennessee.
