Why did you choose Loyola? “I have always wanted to go to Loyola and play lacrosse! I knew it was the perfect fit for me, Loyola has the best lacrosse coaches in the country and one of the top programs in the NCAA.”
2016 HS season highlights/outlook for 2017? “Our team won the Catholic League Championship for the sixteenth year in a row and we made it to the first round in states. We had many awesome out-of-league wins. I believe with everyone returning that our team has a great opportunity to move farther in the state playoffs.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents, friends, family and teammates for all of their support along with Lorraine Beers, Joanne Yusko, Sue Frazier, Jess Lake, George Hopson, Mike McGee, and Eileen Ross. They are all amazing coaches and I couldn’t have done any of this without their help along the way.
“Special thanks to Lorraine Beers and Jess Lake, Archbishop John Carroll’s Head coaches, for supporting me to do my absolute best and to always play with heart out on the field.
“I also would like to give thanks to Jen Adams, Dana Dobbie, and Caroline Hager for giving me this amazing opportunity to play Division 1 lacrosse with them as my coaches. I can’t wait to be down in Baltimore with the team and become a greyhound!”
