What will you major in/study? Communications
Why did you choose Syracuse? Syracuse has an amazing women’s lacrosse team equipped with great coaches. Along with that, Syracuse has very strong academics. Overall Syracuse provides me with great opportunities athletically and academically.
Outlook for your High School team next season? “I am excited for another season at AIS. We had a record breaking season for Agnes Irwin lacrosse last year. Next season I know we can win an Inter-Ac Championship and that is what our goal is.”
Additional Comments: “I want to thank my parents and my older brother who push me to be the best player I can be. Also, I want to thank them for spending countless hours in the car driving me to tournaments, practices, camps, and recruiting visits. They really helped make the recruiting process more enjoyable.
“I would like to thank my Phantastix Coach Lorainne Beers who continues to help and push me to work on my game. Along with Coach Beers, I would like to thank Coach Yusko and Coach Frazier from Phantastix Lacrosse.
“Thank you to my High School coaches, Coach Duck and Michelle Kane, for constantly pushing me everyday at practice to give 100%.
“Finally, I’d like to thank my past and present teammates. Without all of you I would not be the player I am today and I am so lucky to have met my best friends through the sport.”
