Hokies add three to complete 2016-17 signing class
Three transfers will join Tech Lacrosse starting this fall

BLACKSBURG- Virginia Tech lacrosse head coach John Sung has announced three additional student-athletes will transfer to Tech to cap off the 2016-17 recruiting class.

Marissa Davey, Anne Smith and Izzy Obregon will all join the Hokies for this upcoming season.

“I am very excited to have Marisa Davey, Anne Smith and Isabel Obregon join our Virginia Tech Lacrosse family,” said head coach John Sung. “I know that each of their previous experiences will allow them to bring something unique to the table. Even though these three players went to different colleges, there was one thing that they all had in common; playing club lacrosse with M&D Black, one of the top club teams in the state of Maryland. My goal this fall is that we start to build chemistry as team as we continue to add new pieces to our puzzle.”

Davey spent the 2016 season playing for UMBC. The freshman appeared in 16 games and made one start. She totaled 27 points off of 20 goals in her rookie campaign. Davey was named both American East Co-Rookie of the Week and ECAC Division I South Rookie of the Week. She registered two hat-tricks and a five-game goal streak in 2016. Davey graduated from Marriotts Ridge High School in Maryland where she lettered in lacrosse all four years. She tallied 48 goals, 17 assists and 48 draw controls during her career. She was named an Under Armour All-American in 2015.

Smith will transfer into Tech from Johns Hopkins. During her redshirt-freshman year in 2016, she played in five games and totaled three points off one goal and two assists. Smith redshirted in 2015 due to injury. Graduating from McDonogh High School in Maryland, Smith led the team as they broke the national record for consecutive wins in 2014 with 112 wins.

Obregon hails from University of Maryland where she did not see playing time in 2016; her freshman campaign. A 2015 U.S. Lacrosse All-American and Under Armour All-American, she helped lead Robinson High School to state, regional and district championships in 2015. Obregon was named All-Conference, All-Region and All-State as a senior. The Virginia native comes from a lacrosse family with two of her sisters having played for George Mason.
