Why did you choose Georgetown? “I completely fell in love with everything about Georgetown. It has everything I am looking for in a school both academically and athletically. The atmosphere is just so incredible and I could not be any happier with my decision!”
Outlook for your high school team? “It’s definitely going to be different without last year’s seniors. However, we have some really strong players returning from last year and an awesome coaching staff so I definitely think we have the potential to have a really successful season this year!”
Additional Comments: “A huge thanks to my amazing family! They have always been my number one fans and they have been so supportive throughout this whole process.
“Also, I cannot thank Michele DeJuliis and Jen Duckenfield from Ultimate Goal enough. They have been so awesome and helpful since day one. I cannot imagine the player I would be today without them. I also want to thank all of high school coaches (Duncan Swezey, Laura Swezey, Gab Stitz and Rachel Filson) and all of my past HGLC coaches (Deb Lawlor and Jennifer Forcey). They have developed me into the player I am today. Thank you guys so much!
“Another thank you to all of my past and current teammates for always pushing me to be the best I can be! And finally, a huge shout out to my Ultimate girls- I could not have asked for a better club team… Love you guys!”
