RICHMOND, Va. -- VCU Field Hockey Head Coach Laura Baker is excited to announce the recent signing of Shannon Loos. Shannon is the seventh member of the Class of 2018 to join the Rams.

"We are very excited to welcome Shannon to the VCU Field Hockey team and round out our 2018 class. Shannon has played at a high level in the Netherlands and will look to strengthen our midfield line," said Baker.

Shannon comes to VCU after playing for her club team called Pinoké in Amsterdam. She lives in Amstelveen with her family, and recently attended Kaizer Karel College.
