Other comments: “I want to thank my parents for always being there for me throughout my lacrosse career and especially during the busy recruiting process. They have supported me and were my first teachers in life and sports. I also am very appreciative of the wonderful coaches I have had over the years: Coach Mark Pinkerton, Coach Kirstin Schneider, Coach Liz Hockley, Coach Carol Venet and Lauren Dadigan. They have all been incredible teachers of the game and their constant encouragement was greatly appreciated.”
