Why did you choose the school? “Even though I am young, I have visited a lot of college campuses with my 3 older sisters. I attended USC lacrosse camp last summer and when I got to the campus I felt a sense of excitement that I hadn’t felt before. California offers sun and beaches, and USC offers excellent academics, and the chance to be part of an amazing team. The coaches at USC challenged me and gave me the motivation to fight hard and be a better lacrosse player. They are true role models and I will make them proud. This is a dream come true for me.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “I am looking forward to playing with my sister and team captain, Elle Ueland!
Other comments: “I want to thank my parents for helping me in every way to achieve my dream. I am very lucky to have had Deb Andress and Betsy Dougherty as my first coaches. Betsy taught me the basics and got me excited to be better. Deb taught me to LOVE the sport of lacrosse and to fight hard and never give up. Deb will always be in my heart<3.”
“Thanks to Jenny Duckenfield for pushing me and coaching me at a higher level, and always expecting me to challenge myself.
“Thanks to Michele DeJuliis for encouraging me on and off the field. Thanks for being there when I was frustrated or when I wanted to share good news. DJ is someone I look up to and hope to be like someday. I hope she knows how important she is to me.
“Finally thank you to Lindsey Munday and Devon Wills for believing in me. I have learned so much from them and I will continue to work hard to be a force at USC. Fight On!”
