Middle Country (Centereach, N.Y.) freshman Jamie Ortega has verbally committed to play women’s lacrosse for North Carolina.

The 5-foot-4 attacker and midfielder is the first player StudentSportsLacrosse.com has confirmed in the women’s class of 2017.

Ortega also considered Florida, Maryland, Northwestern, Stanford and Syracuse.

“UNC is the perfect blend of excellent academics, a great lacrosse program with awesome coaches, and a school with a lot of pride and school spirit,” Ortega said. “I felt something special when I stepped on their campus.”

Ortega earned All-County Varsity Lacrosse honors in 2013 and was selected as a New York Newsday Player to Watch. Last year she tallied 71 points.

The freshman plays club lacrosse with the Long Island Yellow Jackets.
