What will you major in/study? Undecided/Math or Science
Why did you choose Monmouth? “Monmouth was actually the first school I visited and I was thrilled after I left but I wasn’t quite sure if it was because it was just the excitement of my first visit. However once I continued to visit other schools I noticed no other program was as welcoming as MU. The chemistry of the team is unexplainable..its amazing. The Coaches too are some of the most caring and determined people I have ever met. The program is about the love for the game, and that’s why I play and I am excited to work with such great people at such an successful school academically and athletically.”
Outlook for next season? “This past season we were informed that North Penn’s head coach Jami Willus had stepped down after 12 years of success. That was scary for the team to hear. However its reassuring that we have such a close group of girls who love the game. I think our chemistry is going to transfer on to the field and I have seen it already. I am very excited for North Penn to prove to the area that we will continue to be a strong program and keep our ‘North Penn tuff”. We have a great group of leaders that will instill that in the team.”
Thank You: “First I want to thank my parents for bearing with me through this whole process. I also want to thank the Phantastix club and Coach Frasier, Yusco, and Beers for supporting and teaching me over the years! Also the North Penn coaches Willus, Ali Herman, and Corrato for teaching me so much about the game. A special thanks to Coach Pops for really helping me in my recruiting process and teaching me so much about the game. Also thanks to my teammates for making me love the game and to all the Coaches I have met in the recruiting process for making it the best experience!”
Other schools considered: Boston University, Navy, Cincinatti, UNH, Lasalle, Lafayette
