Why did you choose Mercer? “I choose Mercer because the coaches and girls made me feel extremely welcomed. Coach Eve Levinson (Germantown Academy grad and former coach at PSU-Abington, Bryn Mawr) was nothing but welcoming and I like that she used to play goalie. It’s an opportunity to help start a new program and that is very exciting to me. As such a young team I am thrilled for the chance to begin a strong program. I also really like the strong Pre-Med program available at Mercer.”
Outlook for your High School team? “This year for High School is very exciting, we are looking to have a strong record and compete against top teams in Ches Mont. Hopefully we do end up with a successful season and advance pretty far into the post season.”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my parents for always giving me nothing but there support as I began to explore my options as a goalie in lacrosse. I would also like to thank the coaching staff at Downingtown East for helping me recognize my talents as a goalkeeper and developing into the player I am today.”
