What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose West Chester? “I chose West Chester because they have a great program and the coaches are so nice and welcoming, the campus is beautiful and has a great location which made my decision easy.”
Outlook for your High School team next season? “Although we lost three key seniors, the class of 2014 is strong and experienced. The younger players have a lot of talent and will be huge contributors. I am confident the Jags will be back competing for the Central League Title and be a force to be reckoned with.”
Additional Comments: “I want to thank my Brandywine coaches Donna Coyne and Tori Mitros, they have both done so much for me, both on and off the field. Mrs. Coyne has been my coach since 3rd grade and I really appreciate the time and effort she put in for the Brandywine Majors. Christyann Morello and Chrissy Poplawski for getting me through this crazy recruiting process. Coach Jenny Purvis for all the support this season. My Garnet Valley & Brandywine girls for giving me so many great memories throughout the years and always being there. Most of all I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me and my sister, Tori, for being my best friend and always helping me be my best.”
