CHICAGO -- Eclipse Select Soccer Club defender Fiona McKenna has had quite a bit on her plate in both athletics and academics. The Hinsdale Central High School junior will continue to do so in college as she has made her verbal commitment to play for Princeton's women's soccer team, as well as its hockey team.

"From the beginning I knew I wanted to go Ivy League because they have the best academics," McKenna said.
