What will you major in/study? Nursing
Why did you choose the school? “La Salle is the full package. La Salle offers both outstanding academics while also being a very successful lacrosse program. I also chose La Salle because of the immediate chemistry I felt while on the campus and meeting with the coaches on my unofficial visits.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “This past season York Catholic won our first County Championship, which ended the very successful season. The outlook for next season is exciting because we have a lot of underclassmen coming to fill the spots of graduating seniors. We will have a very talented group and I look forward to being a part of the journey.”
Other comments: “I’d like to thank my family and friends for the constant support during this long and sometimes difficult recruiting process. I would also like to thank my high school and club coaches for constantly pushing me to expand my abilities. Lastly, I would like to thank the coaching staff at La Salle University or giving me an amazing opportunity!”
