What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “Yale offers a unique combination of outstanding academics and athletics. Its academic reputation speaks for itself, and the girls’ lacrosse program is growing tremendously under Coach (Anne) Phillips. Yale has everything I’ve ever wanted in a school!”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “We had a very successful season this past year. As undefeated Inter-Ac champs and PAISAA champs, we know we have a big target on our backs. We are losing an extremely talented senior class but we are also a fairly young team with a lot of depth. I’m confident that we will do just as well this coming year!”
Other comments: “I’d love to thank both my former Episcopal head lacrosse coach, Amanda Vos Strache, and my current head field hockey coach, Gina Buggy. Both offered constant support and help throughout the recruiting process and I know I can always count on them to be there for me!
“I’d also like to thank my parents and family for their continuous support. The recruiting process is not a simple one, so having people rooting for me makes all the difference! I cannot thank them enough for their love and dedication especially over the past few years.
“Finally, I want to thank both my Episcopal and Phantastix teammates. They have pushed me to be the best player and person that I can be. I am so fortunate to have established friendships that will last for a lifetime.”
