In the lacrosse aspect, the coaching staff has a lot to offer and I look forward to being a Spartan!”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “This past high school season was a great one and it was awesome to make it to States.

We are going into the season with high expectations and a hard work ethic. Everyone on the team wants to win a State title.”
Additional Comments: “There are so many people that I want to thank. For starters I would like to thank my parents. Their overwhelming support and encouragement is what has kept me motivated throughout my whole life.
“I would also like to thank my lacrosse coaches. Coach Rachel Busza and Laura Patton have taught me so much, and I am thankful to have such awesome, understanding coaches. Not only do I want to thank my lacrosse coaches, but also my soccer coaches for always encouraging me and making me into the athlete I am today.
“Lastly, I want to thank all my lacrosse and soccer teammates. You girls rock and I love you all.”
