What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose Michigan? “As student/athletes we are always looking to combine high level academics with strong lacrosse. Michigan has that, but for me it came down to really wanting a large campus environment. Getting to know Coach (Jenny) Ulehla and Coach (Jen) Valore sealed my decision. Having an opportunity to be a part of Michigan lacrosse history was too good to pass up!”

What is your team’s outlook for the upcoming season? “Coach Dale Watkins has taken over our program and is turning things around. He brings a lot of experience and knowledge to Kennett and he is committed. We are all excited for the season to begin.”

Additional Comments: “We can all work hard to accomplish our goals, but the support we get along the way is invaluable. I would like to thank Coach Cattano for helping me grow into a strong competitor and teammate, Sue Frazier and all of my supporting Phantastix coaches, and of course ‘Uncle’ Rick Cobb for tirelessly training Meg and me. I would also like to thank my Mom and Dad for their love and support and my brother Bowen who sat through many sporting events!”
