What will you major in/study? Education
Why did you choose JMU? “I chose James Madison University because living in New Jersey I always knew I wanted to go to a southern school with great academic and athletic programs, JMU definitely has that.
“Along with a great school, comes great people like Coach Shelly Klaes-Bawcombe, Coach Samantha Eustace and Coach Emily Garrity, all people that helped make my decision easier.”
Thoughts on the past season/outlook for next season? “This past season was a great season, our team worked as one unit always supporting and pushing each other to improve. That was the driving force that got us to the Tournament of Champions.
“Next season brings a lot of talent and new faces to the field. Can’t wait to work hard when March comes around.”
Thank You: “I would first like to thank my Mom and Dad for supporting me and teaching me to go out and get what I want.
“I would also like to thank my High School/club coaches KC and Dianna Knoblach for their support and for always believing in me.
“In addition, My brothers, Brett and Noah without you two I wouldn’t be nearly as tough as I am now.”
