Plymouth Whitemarsh High School senior Hannah O’Rourke has signed a letter of intent to play ice hockey at Arcadia University in their first year competing as a new NCAA D-III program.
O’Rourke plays defense and is a two-time captain for the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers Girls 19U AA Team. She also was part of the bronze medal-winning team in the 2019 USA Hockey Nationals and has been named to the Inter-County Scholastic Hockey League’s All American Division First Team and All ICSHL Second Team.
“I’m excited to have Hannah as a part of our future program, not just for her on-ice skill and versatility, but for her attitude and leadership abilities as well,” said Arcadia University Coach Kelsey Koelzer. “I’ve had nothing but amazing interactions with her, her coaches and her family. She is going to be a great addition to the program.”
At Plymouth Whitemarsh, Hannah earned scholastic honors her freshman and sophomore years and has also been involved in the track team, Best Buddies, robotics, and the band. She will be majoring in pre-med.
