McDonogh soccer standout Bridgette Andrzejewski, a rising junior and two-time All-Metro first-team forward, has made an oral commitment to play at North Carolina.
Last season, Andrzejewski finished with 29 goals and 10 assists to help lead the No. 1 Eagles (14-2-2) to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference title. In her two seasons on varsity, she has compiled 44 goals and 18 assists.
"I'm really excited. Coach Anson [Dorrance] and the staff were great," Andrzejewski said. "They told me they would help me become the best player I could become and knowing the success they've had in the past, I trust that they will help me reach my full potential."
Andrzejewski, who just returned from a training session with the U.S. national under-17 team in Portland, Ore., added that she grew up idolizing former North Carolina and U.S. national team star Mia Hamm. Andrzejewski is also excited about following in the footsteps of former McDonogh and North Carolina standout Laurie Schwoy, who coached her as a youth. The program's storied history, the coaching staff and current players and the Chapel Hill campus made North Carolina the choice over Virginia and UCLA.
McDonogh now has four players who have made oral commitments to Division I programs; Kia Rankin (North Carolina State), Gaby Vincent (Louisville) and Marcela Robinson (La Salle) are the others.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
