What will you major in/study? Nursing

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “I want the team to take it one game at a time and not get ahead of ourselves. It would be great to top off my senior year by winning the Central League and not sharing it with anyone and also winning another PIAA State Championship and showing everyone that it wasn’t just luck.”

Other comments: “I would like to thank my Mom and Dad, John and Lori, my siblings, John, Jimmy, and Michelle, and also my coaches Kate Henwood, Amanda Kammas, and ChristyAnn Morello for everything. They all helped me so much with my recruiting process and were there every step of the way! I know I made a great choice to go to RMU!”
