WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Ashley High senior Ashley Merritt signed with Berry College on Tuesday afternoon.
Merritt will be on the Berry women’s lacrosse team.
“I actually had a completely different plan so it was really weird how it played out.” Merritt said of her recruiting process. “First I intended to go to an in-state school. I was at a tournament for my travel team, and (Berry) ended up contacting me, and I didn’t really want to play lacrosse at that point. I wanted to play club and just focus on academics, but then I visited, and I just fell in love with the campus, so I didn’t really take the normal recruiting process.”
