Highland residents Pete and JoAnn Geoghan are very proud of their daughter Erin.
She attends the University of Richmond and plays on the women's lacrosse team (ranked 19th).
A graduate of River Hill High School, Erin and two other local gals, Beth Glaros (Wilde Lake) and Taylor Salandra (Glenelg), started in the teams' first game of the season against fifth ranked University of Maryland. Erin played the entire game and caused two turnovers, but they were no match for the Lady Terps.
