Make that another Saint John Vianney athlete who has committed to take their game to the next level. Megan Furch will be taking both her volleyball and basketball skills to Haverford College.
Haverford, a school with a rich sports tradition, will be getting a well-rounded individual in Furch. It was a decision that Megan made with the understanding that she would be able to fulfill the dream of being an athlete at a highly regarded academic institution.
According to Furch, Haverford was her first choice of school. With many options surrounding her, she was able to narrow her selection to three schools; NYU, Montclair State, and Haverford. With Haverford being the top choice, Megan knew that it would take a certain work ethic to make her dream a reality.
Therefore, she decided that playing both volleyball and basketball would be beneficial to her future.”Haverford is such a highly academic school that I figured anything could help. I am sure that playing two sports will be stressful at first, but I am sure I can do it”, Furch said.
Furch also acknowledged her Saint John Vianney teammates. She was able to feed off of their support which has helped her to make the decision that she made today.
“I have the best teammates and coaches in the game I couldn’t ask for anything more. They have always supported me and helped me in any way they could”, Furch addressed. Now that she has achieved her goal of getting into such a prestigious school, she hopes that she and her teammates can bolster the success that they have already achieved at Saint John Vianney.
“Every year before the season, we talk about our team goals. We want to win it all this year. However, I personally want to keep playing hard, improving, and getting every rebound I can and making the most of every minute I am in the game”.
This is something that has made Furch the type of player that she is today. She is one of the most hardworking individuals that you will find. She will be a great asset for Haverford as she certainly will have what it takes to be successful.
