Why did you choose Iona? “The family atmosphere that the lacrosse exudes. It’s the right size as far as student body; there is a rigorous academic program. The coaches are positive and are always providing great feedback to the players.”
Thank You: “Thanks to Tri-State Director Sue Montegari, for helping me in this journey and always giving me great advice. Thanks to Tri-State Coach Murph, for being an amazing coach over the last 4 years. I am definitely a better lacrosse player because of you. You’ve pushed me to be better and I will be forever grateful.
“Thanks to my high school coach, Coach Fox, for seeing something in me that I wasn’t ready to see in myself. When you started me as a freshman, you gave me confidence.
“Thank to my Mom, this is all thanks to you. You’ve driven me to every practice and game I’ve ever had over the last 8 years. Thank you for everything, not just lacrosse. Thanks to Conor; if it weren’t for you playing before me because you were older, I’d have never picked up a stick. Thanks for that!”
