Why did you choose school? “Right when I stepped on Delaware’s campus I knew it was the place for me. The coaches and players were all so welcoming. It is both academically and athletically a great fit for me!”
Outlook for your High School team in 2015? “We had a strong season, winning the SOL American League. Next year we are losing many impactful seniors but I think that we have a lot of young talent that can fill their spots.”
Other comments: “I want to thank my parents for being so supportive throughout this whole process and driving me to all my games and practices. And thanks to my sisters for always being there for me!
“I want to thank Jen Duckenfield and Michele DeJuliis from Ultimate Goal. They have been so incredibly helpful since I started playing Ultimate. None of this would have been possible without them! I’d also like to thank my high school coaches (Duncan Swezey, Laura Swezey and Gab Stitz) and my HGLC coaches (Will Henry, Deb Lawlor and Jennifer Forcey) for their guidance in helping me become the player I am today.
“And finally I want to thank my high school and club teammates, you guys are the best!”
