Hilton Head Prep's Czura decides on Wake Forest

Lane Czura was agonizing over the decision of where she wanted to go to college ... until she visited Wake Forest. One visit to Winston-Salem, N.C., was enough to convince Czura that's where she wanted to go to school, and an offer to join the soccer team was enough to seal the deal.

Czura, a star defender on Hilton Head Prep's soccer team, will not receive an athletic scholarship but she has been told she will have a spot on the roster.
