What will you major in/study? “I plan to study Elementary and/or Special Education.”
Why did you choose the school? “I visited plenty of schools, but from the time I stepped foot on the campus I knew Millersville was the place for me. They also have a reputable Education program, which was a major factor in my decision. Once I met Coach (Mia) Hall, Coach (Lauren) Caminiti and the team I definitely knew I was making the right choice.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We’re still a young team in that lacrosse is fairly new to Freedom High School. We definitely improved in the win column in 2013 and were much more competitive against some of the stronger teams in the conference. Our goal next year – playoffs!”
Other comments: “I would first like to thank my Mom, Dad and biggest fan, my little brother, Peyton, for their encouragement and support. I also couldn’t have attained any of my on field successes without my coaches, teammates and the Freedom Lacrosse Club Board of Directors and boosters.”
