Why did you choose Lehigh? “My first time visiting Lehigh was for their small-sided tournament when I was in 8th grade. After that, I knew it was the school for me. They have the perfect combination of strong academics, and lacrosse.
“I got the chance to visit with the coaches and team, the more I got to know them, the more I could picture myself there. When it came time to decide, I felt the decision had been made a long time ago! I am so excited to be going to Lehigh.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “I’m really excited for this year’s upcoming school season. We have so much talent and potential on our team. Our returning players are really strong, and work well together. We’ve come so close to winning in the past seasons, and I know that everyone’s determined to finally get it done.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my family, especially my Dad for always supporting me through every aspect of the game. I’d also like to thank my club coaches (JoAnn Yusko, Sue Frazier, and Margie Garrity) and high school coaches (Amy Orcutt, and Meaghan McDugall) for always pushing me to get better, and helping me with my recruiting process.”
