What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “Washington College fits academically and has a rich history of high level lacrosse. Coach (Jeff) Shirk and Coach (Chris) Miller have developed a culture of playing the right way and winning, something I look forward to being a part of (“Play Hard / Stick Together”). The Centennial Conference is very competitive and every game is a battle.”
Outlook for 2013 HS season: “We lost a lot of contributing seniors last year (in a 17-3 season), however, we still have a core amount returning varsity players that includes our goalie and most of the defense. Offensively we’ll need to have some of the younger players step up and contribute.”
Other schools considered: Franklin & Marshall, Gettysburg, Ursinus, and Drexel
