Jones Makes Final Tryout

Robyn Jones '06 was invited to attend the Philadelphia Independence's final tryout. The Independence is an expansion professional women's soccer team in the Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) league. The WPS started in 2009 and will begin its second year in April.

"Robyn Jones has a rather interesting story; after starting her college career on a partial scholarship at Division I Rutgers, the goal keeper transferred to Division III Franklin & Marshall College."

"Apparently after attending a small private high school in New Jersey, Jones never quite felt at home on the Rutgers campus and longed for a smaller, and more student friendly atmosphere like F&M."
