Why did you choose Oregon? “Once I visited Oregon I knew it was the place for me. The campus was very compact and it’s easy to get around. The sports complex was impressive and the lax coaches and players were great. The big time sports environment was very exciting. Oregon seemed a perfect fit for me both academically and athletically, it was exactly what I was looking for. I couldn’t be happier with my decision!”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “It’s hard to say at this point. Our school is in the processes of hiring a new coach this year. I think we will be competitive in our county and get at least a District run. We really did not lose too many starters from the previous year. I look forward to a challenging season!”
Additional comments: “I would really like to thank my parents. Between the clinics, tournaments and college visits, they have provided me with unwavering support and assistance.
“I would also like to thank my club coaches, Sue Frazer and JoAnn Yusko, who have help through this process. Club coach Lorraine Beers, who believed in me and pushed me to become a better player and coach Margie Garrity who always had encouraging words.
“A very special thanks to Jenny Duckenfield to help me reach this goal; and Eric Wise of Premier Athletic Performance (PAP) the ones who inspired me the hardest with some incredible work outs.”
