What are your future goals?
Lanzone: “I’m interested in majoring in the medical field at Brown. As for my future goals, I’d like to stay involved in sports through playing and coaching, while also pursuing a career that is rewarding and brings value to my community.”
How do you describe leadership?
Lanzone: “I believe that being a leader on the field means being the teammate that can be counted on not only lead by example skill-wise, but to bring a positive attitude and to go 100% all of the time. Off the field, I think it’s important to work on your skills so you can make an impact on the field, but I also think being an approachable teammate and friend is essential for success on any team. Being approachable means being a teammate that your teammates can go to for help, as well as being a teammate that your friends can give help and advice to easily.”
How do you balance lacrosse, school, and extracurriculars?
Lanzone: “Staying busy actually helps me manage my time because I know my schedule, and I know how important it is to be focused during the limited time I have for schoolwork after practices and games. I love being involved in clubs and extracurriculars as well, and it’s easier to participate in these when my work is done, so that is a big motivator to stay on top of my work.”
