What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Trinity? “I chose Trinity College because I felt like it was the perfect fit for me academically and athletically. I knew as soon as I walked onto campus that I could see myself at Trinity. Coach (Katy) Dissinger and the girls on the team were so welcoming and I felt at home.”
Outlook for 2017 HS season? “I am super excited for the 2017 season. We lost a big group of girls from last year but we have a strong group of seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshman. I think with the team we will have this year, we can definitely live up to past expectations and have an awesome season!”
Thank You: “I want to thank my parents for going all over the east coast for tournaments and camps and pushing me to be my best; my sisters for dealing with my craziness all year; my high school coach Lauren Becker Rubin and my club coach George Dick for teaching me everything and anything about lacrosse and always pushing me to my full potential.”
