Lacrosse Adds Transfer Piper Mullins

The Youngstown State women's lacrosse team has added transfer Piper Mullins, head coach Theresa Walton announced Tuesday.

Mullins spent last season as a freshman midfielder at Robert Morris University, but will enroll at YSU in the Spring of 2021 and be eligible to compete for the Penguins immediately.

"We are very excited for Piper Mullins to contribute to our first season this spring and beyond," Walton said. "Piper comes in having solid experience under her belt with her previous institution and having coached her at the club level in Virginia, we know what she is capable of on the field with our defensive style of play."

In her time at RMU, Piper appeared in six games for the Colonials, tallying one shot on goal, one ground ball and one draw control while forcing two turnovers.

Prior, Piper was a three-time All-Conference/Region athlete at Patrick Henry High School and was selected as a Brine All-Star to represent the State of Virginia in the U.S. Lacrosse senior game. Piper was also twice selected to the U.S. Lacrosse Mid-Atlantic Team while a part of Storm Elite 19 club team.

"No doubt Piper will bring a fresh look to her new home here at YSU and will help continue to build on our character culture as a sophomore," Walton said. "We are thrilled to gain another competitive player with Piper and her college playing experience will instantly add to our depth."
