Why did you choose the school?
“My goal since the beginning of the process has been to find an elite academic school with a competitive lacrosse program, and Richmond meets this. The whole team was very welcoming, and meeting with Coach (Allison Evans) and Coach (Kate Lawlor) ensured my desire to play at Richmond. Richmond has the facilities, the team and the coaching and support staff to enable me to reach my maximum potential in college. Also, one of the highlights of my unofficial visit was having each professor greeting me by name at the door to class and welcoming me to the Richmond family.”

Team’s outlook for 2015 season? “My high school team is a very fast, athletic, and energetic team. We lost four graduated starters, but we have our eye on the prize and will be hard to beat. Count on us bringing home the Shore-Conference trophy this year.”

Other Comments: “I’d like to thank my parents for their support and encouraging me to pursue every high-caliber school during the recruiting process. I’d like to thank Lori Brown, Kelly Knapp and Chris Raichle of T3 for enabling me to be able to be seen by and meet with the most elite lacrosse programs in the country.”
