Why did you choose GWU? “For me, GWU provides the best of all worlds. It is the perfect size with 10,000 students, in the great city of Washington D.C. with an exciting political atmosphere and history. Athletically, I loved all the lacrosse teammates who were really welcoming and fun during my visits to the campus and am looking forward to play in the Atlantic 10 Conference. Academically, GWU has great options between their School of Business and Engineering.”

HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “I am so excited for this upcoming season. Our team is so close, and we have many great returning players from last season. We are really motivated to win the District 1 Championship again as well as the PA State Championship.”

Thank You: “Having played 3 sports for as long as I can remember, I want to thank my parents for all of their support and guidance for so many years that has allowed me to have this great college opportunity. I also want to thank my lacrosse coach, Brooke Fritz, for all of her support and mentorship during high school and club lacrosse. Finally, it is my teammates who make it all worthwhile. Regardless if we win or lose, together, we have made all the experiences fun while we worked together.”
