What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose school? “I was looking for a school with strong academics and a successful lacrosse program. Lafayette excels in both of these areas.
“I really connected with the coach, (Hatboro-Horsham alum) Alison Fisher, whom I have had the great pleasure of playing for through my club team, Ultimate Goal. I really enjoyed the camaraderie of the team, and am excited to play with my former high school teammate, Ana White.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “We lost a lot of strong senior players, but we have a lot of talented underclassmen and returning varsity members that I know will be able to step up to the plate. Our goal is to win the Central League title, the District League title, and make it to State Tournament again.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my Ultimate Club coach, Michele DeJuliis, and my high school coach, Rachel Busza, for all of their help during the process. I would especially like to thank my former high school coach, Jen Duckenfield, who supported me throughout the whole entire recruiting process, and assisted me in my decision making.”
