Why did you choose the school? “I chose the University of Vermont because it is the perfect fit for me. UVM’s support for student athletes was a huge factor and the great balance of academics and athletics was just what I was looking for. Coach (Jen) Johnson, Coach (Remington) Steele, and their players were all so welcoming and kind, and the support among the team members was great.”

Thank You: “I would first like to thank my family and parents for being the best fans and chauffeurs there are, and constantly having my back and supporting me! I would also like to thank my club and high school coach, George Dick, for believing in me and pushing me to become the player I am today. He has been unbelievably supportive throughout the whole recruiting process. Finally, I would like to thank my high school and club teammates for giving me the best lacrosse experience possible!”
