• La Salle Sends Two to West Point


    La Salle High School is proud to announce that two graduating seniors, Renaissance Forster, and Elizabeth Lynch have been admitted to the United States Military Academy at West Point.

    Forster is an honors student and All-League volleyball player who helped lead the Lancers to their second consecutive CIF D1 Volleyball Championship. Forster says she looks forward to earning her commission as she comes from a long line of family members who have served their country in the military. “It was just a dream as a young girl to go to West Point, but La Salle challenged me and as I worked harder and got better grades, West Point became a possibility, then a reality. I love a challenge and I think it would be hard to find a bigger challenge than going to a military academy.” She was courted by both the Army and Naval Academy at Annapolis to attend on an athletic scholarship, yet she chose the Army because she was accepted on her academic achievement alone. “I still plan to “walk-on” the volleyball team and I think I have a good shot at playing for the Black Knights,” she says. Forester will study medicine at the Academy and most likely graduate as a medic. She hopes to earn her MD following her active duty.

    Elizabeth Lynch said, “It’s kind of corny, but a really want to serve my country. That’s why I applied to West Point. Plus I’ll get an education at one of the best schools in the country.” A member of CSF and the NHS, Liz is also a four-year cheerleader who led the Lancers to a top ten finish in the 2014 National Cheer Championships. “I love the competition and the friendships you make in cheer,” she says. “I qualified for the cheer team at West Point during the pre-admittance physicals and I’m really excited about that.”  Lynch has yet to declare a major, but hopes to make the military her career.

    Prior to La Salle’s graduation on Friday, May 23 both girls received leather bound and engraved Certificates of Appointment to the United States Military Academy.
