Graduation Year: 2016
College Choice: Old Dominion University
Club Affiliation: PA Express
Academic honors: National Honor Society, Honor Roll
What will you major in/study? Public Health
Why did you choose the school? “I chose ODU because of their academic success and the unconditional support that everyone their shows towards the student athletes. Despite the pretty large school population, their is a great sense of family around campus. The athletic facilities are amazing and the campus has a very modern feel which was something I was looking for.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “We’ve always been a young team with just a few very strong players. However the team’s athleticism as a whole always seems to get us somewhere positive. This season I think that we will do well within our league with a shot at the district playoffs. We lost three key seniors but still have a core group of returning starters. With good leadership I think we will have a successful season.”
Other comments: “I’d like to thank all my sports coaches, not only in lacrosse, but also for AAU basketball and Soccer. A big thank you to my club coaches, Kelee O’Malley and Joanne Tabor, for all that they taught me and supporting me through the recruiting process. Most importantly, I’d like to thank my parents for always being there and coming to every game giving me endless of support – not to mention taking me to every tournament despite the distance.
Other schools considered? VCU, Robert Morris, Villanova, Rutgers
