Club Affiliation: M&D 2013 Black

What will you major in/study? Engineering (probably electrical)
Why did you choose Penn? “The University of Penn is a great school with a heavy focus on academics which is my primary concern for my future. When I went on the recruiting junior day, the lacrosse team was also a lot fun to hang out with and all of the girls were really nice and welcoming. I felt like the coaches were really warm when working with me and coaching me at their camp and wanted to make me a better athlete, not just expecting me to improve on my own.
“Going into a difficult major such as engineering is going to be extremely time consuming as well, and I think it will be really helpful to be at a school where academics matter to the coach, and I will be surrounded by people who care about their education, not just lacrosse.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the rest of the season? “I think our team will be really strong this year. Even though we lost several strong players, particularly on defense, our midfield and attack are full of returning, experienced players who are ready to lead the team through, hopefully, another winning season. We hope to return to states again this year and play well as a team.”
Additional comments: “I am thankful for my parents who have been supportive and willing to put in the time, effort, and money to make me not only the athlete, but the person I’m growing up to be.
“From 4th grade until high school, Buddy Remenapp was an amazing coach. Everyone coached by him agrees they have never learned so much, so quickly, from any other coach.
“Since middle school, my club coaches Brooke Kuhl-McClelland and Tommy McClelland have been phenomenal and have taught me so much, and the girls on my team made me a better player because they are all such great athletes and such strong competition.
“My high school coaches, Rose Pentz and Becky Trumbo have done a great job as well leading the Century team so many times to the state tournament.”
