Maddie Landers (North Andover, Mass.) has long considered Boston College to be a "dream school."
On Monday, she took a major step towards making that dream become a reality.
Landers, a Class of 2023 central midfielder for the Pingree School and NEFC Girls Academy, verbally committed to Boston College and is ecstatic about her future playing in the mighty ACC.
"Playing in the No. 1 soccer conference in the country was very appealing to me," Landers said. "Getting to play against some of the best soccer players in the country -- I knew I wanted this, so I could be pushed to be the best soccer player I can be. It’s a very competitive league and BC is also very strong with academics, so that was two very important factors for me."
