Amanda McClure came from Ontario to study neuroscience at St.Lawrence University. “All trough high school I was really focused on my grades hoping that I would get a scholarship in the states,” she said. Thanks to her hockey performances, she ended up with both an athletic and and academic scholarship at St. Lawrence.
Hockey always has been a big part of her life. ‘I think I was four years old and it was just in my family, like my brother played sports. He grew up playing hockey, my dad always played hockey growing up, all my cousins and friends did, so it was just like pretty natural that I would, too,’ she explained.
