The cancellation of the majority of the 2020 season meant that many players played their last game with their team. With the NCAA granting a fifth year of eligibility for seniors, some of them will be taking advantage of the opportunity and will be transferring to a different school to play their extra year. Others who still have much of their college careers ahead of them will also be playing elsewhere next season. While these players will be wearing a new uniform, the excellence that they’ve consistently shown on the field won’t change. Here are Long Island’s top girl transfers.
