Kacie Benn (Acton, Mass.) has been in contact with Fairfield University coaches since last June.
Ever since then, Benn had a feeling that Fairfield would be a comfortable landing spot for her at the next level. When she attended an ID clinic at the university, that sentiment only grew stronger.
"I saw the school, and I heard the girls on the team talk, and I loved the coaching staff -- they were just so welcoming and nice -- and the campus was so pretty," said Benn. "It just very much seemed like a vibe that I would enjoy a lot."
Benn, a Class of 2023 midfielder for FC Stars White ECNL National and for Acton-Boxborough (Mass.) High School, recently committed to Fairfield, a Division 1 program in Connecticut.
