What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose the school? “After visiting a number of schools out of state during the summer of 2012, I decided that I wanted to stay closer to home. As soon as I visited St Joe’s and met Coach (Denise) Roessler, Coach (Liz) Martin and Coach (Kelly) Barnes I felt right at home. St. Joe’s is the perfect fit for me both academically and athletically. I love what they’re doing with the program and I look forward to a great college career.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season?
“We have some great players returning to the team this year and hope to add some talented freshmen. We are a very athletic team and have the potential to win our third conference title in a row. We also look forward to going even further in the state playoffs this year.”

“I would like to thank my Mom, Dad, and Sister for always supporting me, encouraging me, and coming to every game. They have been my biggest fans. I would also like to thank my high school coach, Kathleen Burke Esposito. She helped me develop into the confident, strong, and competitive player I am today. She also supported me and helped me through the entire recruiting process. I would also like to thank my club coach, K.C. Knobloch. Mr. Knobloch worked with me throughout my high school career and helped me to take my lacrosse skills to the next level. Lastly, I would like to thank my teammates, both past and present, for their support and confidence in me!”
