Why did you choose the school? “I have visited multiple schools and the location was perfect for me. When I met the coaching staff they came off as determined and knowledgeable people. Academically and athletically I know I will be pushed for my best.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “As our varsity coach enters her third year I think we will be getting into the swing of things. We have a young team, but the talent that is present is a huge asset to our team.”
Other Comments:“I would like to thank my father for tirelessly taking me to college visits and supporting me in every way he possibly could.
