Lakota West Senior Emily Elstun (Class of 2017), daughter of Laura Moulton and David Elstun, has recently made a commitment to further her education and continue playing lacrosse at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Elstun also considered attending University of Cincinnati and Jacksonville University. She plans on studying pre-law.
“I loved the small size and intimate learning environment coupled with D1 athletics and a beautiful campus,” said Elstun.
Elstun led the Firebirds with the most assists last season and was honored with offensive player of the year. In addition, she’s also a member of the Lakota West Cross Country team.
“We are so proud of Emily! She is a great leader and one of the hardest workers I have coached. She is going to be a great asset at Wofford in their beginning years as a new D1 program. We are excited to see what she can accomplish there,” said Lakota West Head Varsity Lacrosse Coach Kaylyn Hodel.
Elstun credits her parents and club coach, Natalie Lang, with helping her with the decision to attend Wofford.
Wofford just started the women’s lacrosse program and the 2018 spring will be the “inaugural” season. The school has hired Ceri Miller as the head coach who was previously the head coach at Goucher College in Maryland. The team had eight student-athletes sign with the program from the class of 2016. The team will compete at the NCAA D1 level in the Atlantic Sun Conference.
