What will you major in/study? Business or Sociology
Why did you choose school? ” The coach (Jaime Sellers) is awesome and a great and the assistant (Christie Kaestner) is awesome. It’s a beautiful school with a really nice campus that is 20 minutes away from Myrtle Beach. There’s 18 players signed and probably more girls will walk on, but we’re all going to have a good opportunity to play since it’s such a new program.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “We lost to Moorestown in the playoffs, but the year before we beat them for first time in a long time. We’re a very inexperienced team; we only have a few returning starters and the rest of them are all juniors and sophomores. So we’re pretty young and inexperienced. I think we’ll be pretty good. The class below is strong and talented. Even though it’s a small senior class, the seniors that do play are all going to good schools.”
Other comments: “I definitely want to first thank my parents; they do a lot for me and help me through a lot And also I want to thank my coaches; they are the main reason I have improved and grown over the years. I have a lot of good coaches, including my dad and my mom.”
