Devin Holmes of Fleetville, a senior at Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School, will continue her academic and athletic career at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. in the fall.
Holmes will play for Georgetown head field hockey coach Tiffany Marsh in the NCAA Div. I Big East Conference.
A University of Maryland graduate, Marsh helped the Terrapins win their fourth national title during her senior year and was named to the 2005 NCAA All-Tournament team.
Holmes also considered other schools such as Duke University, Davidson College and Richmond University. She chose Georgetown because of the university's acclaimed academic programs and Marsh's emphasis on the importance of high academic standards for athletes.
I've attended a field hockey camp at Georgetown and was very impressed with Coach Marsh's passion for the game, she said.
Holmes, a four-year varsity letter winner and starter on defense, was a member of the Blue Knights 2010 and 2011 state AA championship teams.
Holmes, who plans to major in international health at Georgetown, is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Todd Holmes of Fleetville.
