Honesdale's former multi-sport standout Allaina Propst is making a name for herself at the collegiate level. A sophomore at Bryn Mawr, the onetime Lady Hornet is starring for both the women's soccer and basketball teams.
When Allaina Propst attended Honesdale High School, she was so heavily involved in extra-curricular activities that she barely had time to sleep.
Propst was a star athlete and dedicated student.
She played both soccer and field hockey while also serving as class secretary. Allaina even revived the “Hornet”?mascot during basketball season, donning the traditional red &?black costume all winter long.
After graduating from Honesdale in 2008, Propst enrolled at Bryn Mawr College in Lancaster and picked up right where she left off.
Allaina saw significant playing time this fall as a member of the women’s soccer team. Now that the winter sports season has arrived, Propst is back in action as a key component of the varsity cagers.
