Major lacrosse honors: “I started playing Lacrosse my sophomore year of High School and this year I received 1st Team All-Catholic.”

Why did you choose La Salle? “I chose La Salle for several good reasons. First, I was very impressed with the campus that included high tech science labs and high standards for the Nursing Program.
“Second, I’m thrilled with the athletic opportunities. The Lacrosse coaching staff, Coach Candace (Taglianetti) and Coach Shannon (Wetzel) were so supportive and really helped in making my decision to be an Explorer.
“Finally, many of my friends from Archbishop Wood will be joining me at LaSalle in the Fall. I see myself joining them for an amazing four years of college.”
What are your thoughts on the season? “The Archbishop Wood Girls Lacrosse Team had a great year under the leadership of Coach John Duca. The team was comprised of 8 seniors all striving for the championship. We trained all winter and when springtime came we hit the ground running. Unfortunately, we fell a little short in the semi-final round of playoffs. I wish the team all the best to win the championship in 2013.”
Additional comments: “I would like to thank God for the athletic ability that he has bestowed on me. I also thank my family for all their support throughout the years and standing behind me in all the decisions that I have made. I give special thanks to Coach John Duca and my teammates for teaching me everything about Lacrosse, they pushed me to excel in everything.”
