"Haley Chow comes from a top ECNL club, the Pleasanton Rage, home to former Tiger student-athlete, Ashley Byers ‘08. Top Drawer ranked her as the #14 player in all of Northern California and Hawaii. Standing six feet tall, she is a presence in the middle of the back, and she also has incredible range with her distribution. Haley is an incredibly smart, engaged student-athlete and we feel fortunate she will be joining the Princeton family."
