AS A FRESHMAN (2012)- Appeared in 39 contests while getting the starting nod in seven...Scored a run in nine different games including four straight at the end of the season...Recorded first multi-hit game of her career at Coppin State when she went 2-for-3 (3/11).
BEFORE SIENA- Earned four varsity letters at Paramus Catholic and was a four-year starter in the outfield...Also earned four letters in basketball, and was a four-year starter on that team as well...Played her travel ball for the Hudson Valley Hurricanes Gold...Also recruited by Marist, Williams College, and USP.
PERSONAL- Born March 2, 1993...Daughter of Larry and Bonni Milligan...Majoring in business and marketing...Has one brother.
LAJEUNESSE ON MILLIGAN - "Lauren brings tremendous speed to the lineup. She will primarily hit from the left side as a slapper, but has demonstrated the ability to drive the ball to the outfield as well. Her outfield skills have improved, and we are looking for her to see time as a corner outfielder this season."
