Why did you choose this school? “The University of Michigan is everything I have ever dreamed of and more. After seeing the campus and meeting the coaches/team, I immediately knew it was where I would want to spend those 4 years of my life. I couldn’t imagine myself at any other place!”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “This year we are coming back into the Spring with new players who will be filling the big shoes left by many graduated seniors from last year. I’m super excited to see what this season brings us, and can’t wait to play with this amazing group of girls!”
People to thank: “I’d like to thank Lisa Aikman (school coach), Michele DiJuliis (club coach), Heather Wentz (club coach), Chelsea Rosiek (club coach), and Jenny Duckenfield (Philly Team Coach) for supporting me and guiding me through the entire process. They each helped me develop my skills on and off the field. I feel so lucky to have played for so many amazing coaches! I’d also like to thank Katie for being my role model and for laxin with me in the backyard 24/7! I’m especially going to miss your BIG draw, Big Sis! Last, but definitely not least, I need to thank my parents. Thank you for the endless road trips and long car rides. Thank you for always having my back, and for your unconditional love.
