What will you major in/study? Education

Why did you choose Iona? “I loved the team, and Coaches (Michelle) Mason and Caitlin (Jackson) are great. I felt like I could really contribute to this program. Iona is a school I really saw myself going to.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “I think my high school is going to have a very successful season this year. We were co-conference Champions last year and have a lot of strong returning players.”

Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my club coach Mark Pinkerton, my past high school coach Kirsten Schneider and of course my parents for helping me throughout the whole recruiting process and for teaching me and making me the player I am today. I would especially like to thank my Dad Scott Hager for coaching me since I was little. My dad always encourages me to do my best and has spent so much time outside having a catch or practicing skills with me.”
