Bosica commits to North Carolina

Megan Bosica, last spring's girls lacrosse All-Metro Player of the Year and one of the top recruits in the nation, has orally committed to play for the University of North Carolina. Bosica, a Mount Hebron senior, said her final decision was between North Carolina and Maryland. "At both schools, I really liked the people, and it was a really hard decision, but North Carolina had such a nice campus, and everyone was so nice," the high school All-American said. "I got that feeling. I just knew." For two straight two years, Bosica was selected as the top schoolgirl player at the US Lacrosse Women's Division National Tournament.
