Grace Damaska and Georgetown go back a long way. Way back.
“I first visited (Georgetown) during a WAGS tournament when I was 11,” she said. “It is a special place.”
It is also a place where Damaska will be adding a few more years of history. The 2013 standout has committed to the Hoyas, choosing them over programs like Clemson and Penn.
Damaska is an elite ECNL player for the Atlanta Fire where she is her team’s leading scorer and play-maker and always seems to rise to the occasion with big performances in the league’s important events.
