What will you major in/study? “I would like to major in the sciences but also am considering PC’s school of Pharmacy eventually.”
Why did you choose the school? “I love the south and visited a lot of schools down there. I want to play in a D1 program down south and at a school that wasn’t planning to take on too many goalies because I want to have a shot of playing as a freshman. Presbyterian was the most welcoming and the coaches are amazing and I feel very comfortable there.”
Looking back at this year and ahead to next season? “Coach Beers, Lauren and George are the best coaches and push all of us to be the best player we can be. Plus, my teammates are great and we all get along which makes it even more enjoyable to play. I loved having the opportunity of being coached by such amazing coaches. It was a really fun year and even though we lost in the first round of states I know that next year we’ll all come back strong.”
