I’d also like to thank my coaches at Express, Maureen and Dennis Runyon, Erin Runyon, and Maureen Staska and my coaches at West, Courtney McGinty and Emily Ernest, for believing in me and pushing me to be the best I can be on and off of the field. A special thanks to Susan Camden for being my lacrosse mentor and guide these past seasons.”
