What will you major in/study? Psychology with a minor in Athletic Training.
Why did you choose school? “Montclair had everything I was looking for in a school. It is a medium size school, in a good location, with a nice campus, has my programs of study, and an excellent lacrosse program. The coaches and girls were nice right away, and I really see myself there.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “This year we should do very well. We lost eight seniors, but we have a strong underclass that should make us successful. We are going to be a young team, but we have a great coach who was new to the program last year but has many years of experience and clear goals for our team.”
Other comments: “I’d like to thank my first high school coach, Lauren Ferrara, who taught me many things, and made me really passionate about the sport. Also, I’d like to thank my current high school coach, who was also my South Jersey Select club coach, David Schlesinger, for really caring about making me a better player, and teaching me key ways to be a successful player. Thanks to my parents for always being there and coming to all my games and tournaments. And a big thank you to my teammates, the experience of lacrosse would be nothing without them.”
