Why you chose Bowdoin? “I chose Bowdoin because they have great academics and athletics. I also love Maine and felt like I really clicked with the coaching staff. It really felt like the perfect fit from the start.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank Tri-State Director Sue Montegari, who has helped me so much in the recruiting process. When I started I really had no idea how the process worked and having someone like Sue, who knows all about it, was amazing and made it so much less stressful. I would also like to thank Coaches Wendy Morris and Grace Megaffin from Pennington, who have always pushed me to get better, and Tri-State Coach Christie Cooper.who took me in and showed me that nothing is out of my reach.
“I would like to thank my parents for editing countless emails and driving me all around New England for camps. They have supported me so much through this process; it got extremely stressful at times, and they made it so much easier on me. I would also like to thank my brother Max and sister, Brooke, for always supporting me. Also, I want to thank Betsy Dougherty getting me into lacrosse, and being the best coach I have ever had. Lastly, I would like to thank the Bowdoin coaching staff for giving me such an amazing opportunity.”
