Why did you choose Quinnipiac? “While traveling for lacrosse tournaments with my family, we stopped and visited many college campuses on the way. Coming home from a tournament in Massachusetts, we stopped at several colleges, including Quinnipiac. I remember being very impressed with how beautiful the campus was, as well as its convenient location between New York City and Boston. When I returned home, I researched the school and discovered that it had a great business program, as well as a Division I lacrosse team that had just won their conference title. With the great academic programs, beautiful campus, and wonderful scholarship opportunity that I was offered, choosing Quinnipiac University was a no-brainer.”
HS team’s outlook for next season? “Last season, we had a young team with many new players and only three seniors leaving us. Since we only lost three people and the new players now have a full season of experience, we should be able to pick up where we left off and see more success this spring. I have high expectations for the team this year.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank KC and Deanna Knobloch and David Schlesinger for organizing South Jersey Select year after year. I’d also like to thank coaches Sara Shelley, Nicole Santilli-Doyle, Katie Duffey, and Jessica Loizeaux for teaching me important parts of the game and making lacrosse even more enjoyable. Lastly I’d like to thank my parents for taking me to lacrosse practices and tournaments, helping me with my college search, and supporting me in all my years of playing lacrosse.”
