Why did you choose the school? “I chose Penn State not only for their amazing lacrosse program, but also for the exceptional academics the school offers. The support system offered to student athletes is indescribably comforting. Penn State is also a large school with big sports, which is exactly what I was looking for in a school. What really sealed the deal for me, however, is the amazing coaching staff and meeting the girls on the team. The overall environment of the school and team makes me even more excited to become a Nittany Lion!”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “I could not be more excited for this upcoming lacrosse season. The team this year will consist of a well-rounded group of girls who all have the greatest potential to make this a winning season for Spring-Ford Lacrosse. I just love being able to play my favorite sport with some of my best friends.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my parents, brother and friends for the continual support in not only the recruiting process but my entire lacrosse career. I would also like to thank my coaches who have helped me become the lacrosse player I am today as well as help me through the recruiting process.”
