Why did you choose school? “Vanderbilt has a very strong academic reputation, and the Vanderbilt women’s lacrosse team is a top level Division 1 program. The chemistry of the girls on the team is very special, and the coaches are absolutely awesome. After visiting the beautiful campus, and touring the City of Nashville, I was convinced that Vanderbilt was the school for me!”
Outlook for 2016 HS season? “We had a very successful season in 2015, and I know it will only get better this year. We have a very tough schedule this coming season playing some of top teams in the country, but the team works so hard for everything and I am very excited to see what the new season will bring!”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Mom, Dad, and family for their constant love and support. I would also like to thank my high school and club lacrosse coach, Jen Duckenfield, for always pushing and encouraging me to be my best! I could not have done it without her. I am also extremely grateful for all of my amazing Agnes Irwin and Ultimate teammates!”
