Why did you choose school? “I chose Holy Cross because it has everything I wanted in a school: a great balance of academics and a competitive Division 1 lacrosse program. Coach (Stephanie) Ridolfi (Mount St. Joseph grad) made me feel comfortable right away and I felt like I would fit in with the girls on the team, as well. When you are on campus you feel part of a tight-knit community and I loved feeling that when I visited. Overall, Holy Cross was the right fit for me in every aspect and I am so excited to become a Crusader.”
Outlook for your High School team? “My high school team’s outlook for this year is to have another extremely successful season and win the TOC again.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my friends, my teammates, and my family for always loving and supporting me through my lacrosse career. I want to also thank my parents for trusting me in this process and guiding me in the right direction as well as supporting, encouraging, and loving, me through all of my recruiting.
“I want to thank my club coach, KC Knobloch, for helping me and guiding me through the process as well. I also want to thank all of my coaches throughout my lacrosse career, including my dad: you all taught me to love the game, and I wouldn’t have gotten here without any of you.
“Finally, I want to thank Coach Ridolfi and the rest of the coaching staff at Holy Cross for providing me with this opportunity.”
Other schools considered: Columbia University, Virginia Tech, Boston University
