What will you major in/study? Special Education
Why did you choose Lock Haven? “I feel the special education program is strong at LHU and I will be able to excel.

I am looking forward to working with them.”
Outlook for your High School team next season? “I am very excited about our upcoming season this year with 9 returning seniors and last years trip to States under our belt. We now have the experience of playing at that level. We have been playing well together for many years and we have a strong connection on the field.”

Also to my closest lacrosse friends, we call ourselves the six pack: Haley, Maggie, Emma, Rachael, and Alex. They have been my support and advisers since junior high.
