What will you major in/study? Leaning towards Communications
Why did you choose school? “I am a people person and when I met the girls, they really took me in and treated me as one of them. I really like the opportunities that Drexel has to offer. It’s a really good school and I think I can do well there. I fell for the whole city atmosphere.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “I am looking for the team to grow. Last year we were really young. It’s a two-year process. I think we can build on what we did last year.”
Other comments: “I want to thank (Pottstown) coach (Andy) Bachman for pushing me harder, and (Aftershock) coach Jenn (Medaglia) for always telling me to look at colleges and helping me find out what I wanted to do. I thank Brandy McPherson, Pottstown field hockey coach and assistant lacrosse coach. I thank my mom for supporting me and my twin sister, Mariah, for supporting me, as well as my three brothers, Dartel, William and Michael; my stepfather Errol; my dad Michael; and Danae Perrymond; and the upperclassmen that helped me when I was starting as a high school player.”
