What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose ODU? “I chose Old Dominion because I love the campus and the various majors it has to offer. I love Coach (Heather) Holt’s coaching style and intensity. ODU is the all around perfect fit for me.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Being a very young team last year with only two seniors, our underclassmen really had to step up to the plate. This year I hope to make it past the first round of districts and continue on.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank Coach Jen Duckenfield and Michele DeJuliis for all their help in the recruiting process, and for continuing to push me to my fullest potential. I would also like to thank Coach Lindsey Colferai for always believing in my abilities even as a young player for Mount.
“Most importantly, I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me, and my teammates for making me a better player.”
