Why did you choose Brown? “Brown offers an amazing combination of rigorous academics and athletics. I admire the team and program that Coach (Keely) McDonald has created at Brown, and hope I can contribute to Brown’s future success.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Coming off an injury, I hope that I can help bring the team to another PAISAA State Championship. Last season was such a success, and with hard work I know we can get there again.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my high school coach, Lauren Becker Rubin, for helping me through this entire process, and having faith in me, even through my injury. I have learned so much from her.
