What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “Over the last few years I was fortunate enough to go to a few football games and I really liked the campus. When I visited the school in the beginning of the year, I officially fell in love with Penn State because it has everything I was looking for. It is big school with great academics and has an extremely athletic atmosphere. I went to the lacrosse camp this summer and after experiencing the great coaching staff, the existing team and the incoming recruits, I knew it was a perfect fit. I couldn’t be more excited!”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “This year we lost a very talented senior class, but we have a strong number of rising juniors and sophomores returning, as well as many key seniors and a new pool of freshmen to add to the mix. We made it to the State finals this year and our goal is to win districts and get to States again next year. I have a lot of confidence in our team and coaches and I am looking forward to a great season.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my high school coaches, Brooke Fritz, Lauren Devlin and Kristen Connell for all their support and for continuing to push me to become a better player. A big thanks as well to my club coaches, Michele DeJuliis, and Chelsea Rosiek, for their constant encouragement and advice. I also wanted to thank all my teammates for making this experience so enjoyable, and my family for their continued support and guidance through this whole process!”
