What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “Lafayette offers a combination of great academics and athletics. Before visiting Lafayette, I thought the school was too close to home. During my visit, I fell in love with the school. The coaching staff is awesome, the campus is beautiful, and the academics are first rate. Despite the school being so close to home, I realized that Lafayette was the right place for me.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? Our team had a great season in that we improved from a record of 1-14 to 12-5 and made it to District 11 semi-finals before losing to the eventual champion. We were very young last season, and with another year of experience I think we will continue to improve.
Thank You: I would like to thank Coach Dawn Cipolla of the SPA lacrosse program, who helped me develop a lot of my skills during middle school; Coach Kyle Shaughnessy who has been a great mentor for me at the high school level, and the entire Phantastix coaching staff. I would also like to thank my parents for supporting me, and my older brother Matthew for introducing me to lacrosse and inspiring me to improve!”
Other schools considered? Richmond, Lehigh, High Point, Cincinnati
