College Choice: University of California Berkeley
Club Affiliation: Phantastix
Major lacrosse honors: 2nd team All-Phillyacrosse.com, Philly team 2, All-Catholic Academies
What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose the school? “I chose Cal because it was the right fit for me. I loved California and Berkeley offers such a wide variety of opportunities continuing after graduation.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “We had a strong last season. With our senior leaders Julianne D’Orazio and Courtney Devine graduating, we are looking for underclassmen as well as upperclassmen to step up and fill in their shoes. We are going to work hard towards another Catholic Academies League championship title.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my parents for coming with me to visit the colleges I was interested in and also for driving me to all of my practices and tournaments. I would like to thank my club coaches, Mrs. Cross, Mrs. Hagar, Miss Yusko, and Mrs. Frazier for allowing me to play for Phantastix. I would also like to thank my high school coach, John Geary for keeping my skills sharp and showing me different ways to play the game. Lastly, I would like to thank my three sisters who taught me everything I know.”
