What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “I committed to Stanford last October after visiting a number of campuses. I have always wanted to go to a place that embraces both athletics and academics highly. I thought that Stanford strikes that perfect balance. Coach Amy Bokker (Phoenixville graduate) has built a program that is on the rise and I wanted to be a part of building something special.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Our Sacred Heart Prep team has won the conference and conference tournament the last two seasons. Next year that will be our goal again as well as challenging some of the top programs around the state.”
Other comments: “I would like to especially thank my Phantastix family. They welcome me back every summer and I am grateful to be a part of a club with tremendous tradition and success. Of course, thanks to my parents and sister for their constant support. Finally, to all of my coaches, thanks for having helped make my dreams come true.”
Other schools considered? Duke, Northwestern and UNC
