Laura George embodies a standard of excellence that goes well beyond the requirements of becoming a member of Peddie’s Sports Hall of Fame. As a student, “Laurie” played three varsity sports, field hockey, basketball and lacrosse, while maintaining an incredibly high academic average earning her the distinction of being awarded the Winant Cup in 1984 as outstanding scholar-athlete.

During her senior year at Peddie, Laurie was named the Field Hockey Outstanding Team Player and she won the Lacrosse team award for sportsmanship, leadership and commitment.

Dedicated to lifetime sport, Laurie continued playing field hockey and varsity lacrosse while she was a student at the University of Pennsylvania.
