Keeper from Stars of Mass selects Villanova

Emily Harris, a Class of 2014 goalkeeper from Derry, N.H., has verbally committed to Villanova.

Harris is a three-time state Olympic Development Program keeper and plays club soccer for FC Stars of Massachusetts.

In high school play at Pinkerton Academy (Derry, N.H.), she played sweeper her freshman year on the varsity squad because her older sister Katherine played in net. Now that Katherine has graduated, Emily has taken over the starting goalkeeper spot at Pinkerton.

Harris becomes the first confirmed commit to Villanova for the class of 2014.
