George Mason University women’s lacrosse player Morgan Rynn has never been one to stay on the sideline whether on or off-field. Rynn has gone from midfielder to seamstress with the season canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Rynn and her mother, Donna, have made over 100 protective masks for medical workers and others in the community.
Rynn said, “After hearing so many stories about people struggling right now, it’s hard to sit back and watch when you are so fortunate to be in a position where you are healthy and safe. I definitely think having that athletic background has driven me to want to do something more with my time.”
According to wtop.com, “Rynn is continuing to take classes from home online and is a few weeks away from completing her degree at George Mason. While the studying continues, the protective mask making has turned into a family project. Rynn’s father Frank, brother Chris, and sister Katie have all been helping out with everything from cutting fabric to distributing the masks.”
As per wtop.com, “Rynn’s position on the George Mason roster is listed as Attack/Midfield, and it also said a lot about how she approaches life and its challenges. A four-year letter winner in lacrosse at Upper Perkiomen High School in Red Hill, Pennsylvania, Rynn also made the distinguished honor roll, was a member and president of the National Honor Society and served the student council, including one year as president. In addition to helping people, Rynn has discovered she has liked her newfound hobby. Which came as no surprise to her, as Rynn said she has always been into arts and crafts, and in her words, sewing is something that keeps her off her phone all day when not doing homework.”
