Introducing Field Hockey Newcomer Lindsay Pratt

Lindsay Pratt, a four-year letterwinner at West Chester East High School, joins the Lady Flames attacking core for the 2015 season. Pratt hails from the field hockey-rich state of Pennsylvania, making her the 10th player on the current roster from the Keystone State. During her junior year (2013), Pratt was named an honorable mention performer in the Chesmont League. Pratt broke through that plateau, garnering a spot on the first team All-Chesmont team in 2014, thanks to her 23 goals, that made her the second leading goal scorer in Chesmont league play that year. Pratt was named as the team's Offensive Player of the Year.

Pratt is involved with a volunteer organization at her high school called Interact. Pratt also participates at a mini-thon that raises money for kids with pediatric cancer, where she stands for 15 hours straight to raise awareness for kids. 

Why did you choose Liberty?

"I chose Liberty because of the amazing and wonderful atmosphere that I entered when I stepped onto the campus. Also, I loved the team and the amazing people around the school."

What was your favorite thing about Liberty's campus?

"My favorite thing about the campus was how new everything looked and also how the campus wasn't spread out too much. I love how there are so many renovations going on and how you can see Gods work through the campus."

What is your goal coming to Liberty?

"My goal coming to Liberty is to develop my skills as field hockey player on and off the field. Also increasing my skill level when it comes to the college level of play would be one of my goals. I also want to become a better person and to strengthen the relationship I have with Jesus Christ."

Head Coach Jodi Murphy on Pratt:

"I am very excited to welcome Lindsay to the Liberty Field Hockey program. Lindsay is a natural athlete. She has a tremendous amount of speed that will complement our forward line very well. She is a feisty competitor and has a great desire to continue to learn and grow in the college game. I believe she is a player that will greatly benefit from playing on a water-based turf game in and game out. I am looking forward to seeing how Lindsay's career unfolds at Liberty."
