At the club level, she played for Century United for seven years. She was a member of five State Cup Champions (PPA) teams and the 2008 PA West State Cup champion team. She led Century United to a national finals appearance and two regional championships.
"Lauren will add a real physical presence to our midfield," said Alvine. She's strong in the tackle, good in the air and will add some experience and leadership to our current group of players."
The Dukes conclude their spring schedule on Sunday with matches against Robert Morris at noon and Marshall at 3:00 p.m. on Rooney Field.
