Why did you choose school: “From the first time I visited Lock Haven, I could picture myself there in the future. The beautiful campus setting and school size fit my expectations perfectly. The instant connection I felt with Coach Kristen Selvage and Katie McConnell, the family-like team, and the school’s great PA program were all the most important factors of my decision. I can’t wait to be a part of LHU’s lacrosse family next year!”
Looking back at 2013 and outlook for your high school team in 2014: “Last year was tough but our team learned a lot about our limits and what we really want to accomplish in a season’s time. We’re going to work for it this year and strengthen ourselves as a team!”
Other comments: “I’d like to thank my parents for the constant support and enthusiasm as we spent many hours on the road to tournaments and college visits, and the countless games they have watched and cheered on in the past years. I’d also like to thank my club coach, Mark Pinkerton, for always giving his time to better each of us as players to help us reach our full potential and always giving me something I can work on next. I want to give a huge thanks to my high school coach, Shanna Muscavage, for being one of my biggest supporter’s, always pushing me to give 110% and always believing in our team. She has taught me so much on and off the field and has truly transformed our school program.
