Whitney Point, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

Whitney Point's Mary Knapp officially signed her letter of intent to play field hockey at the University of Vermont.
She says she fell in love with the campus the first time she visited.
And her decision was about more than just field hockey.

"I checked on the school's academics before I looked at the athletics and it came down to the academics and also the team there, the team dynamic and the coaching staff there. I'm just really excited."

Knapp says she's been waiting for this moment for a long time and thanked her parents, who she says, worked just as hard as she did.
She says she isn't sure about playing time yet, but hopes to get there and make an impact on the team.
