What will you major in/study: Athletic Training
Why did you choose school: “I visited my fair share of schools for both lacrosse and academics to figure out the type of school I wanted to attend. As soon as I visited Marywood and met with Coach (Katie) Tutak, I knew this would be a great fit for me. After my overnight, where I met most of the team and sat through athletic training classes, I felt that I could definitely see myself here for the next 4 years. They also have a fantastic athletic training program that will prepare me for graduate school where I plan on getting my DPT. Coach Tutak has great ideas for the next few years and I’m extremely excited to be a part of them.”
Outlook for your high school team: “As a newer team to the Lehigh Valley Conference, we face our fair share of difficulties, but are quickly improving our level of play. We are excited for this season since we have a large amount of new players and we are hoping that they can help us win our division.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my coaches, team, Freedom lacrosse booster club and especially my family and friends for always pushing me to do my best. I’m truly thankful for everything you have all done for me and I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for all of you.”
