What will you major in/study? Communications
Why did you choose B.U.? “I chose Boston University because I felt an instant connection to the amazing coaches and team. As soon as I stepped onto the campus I knew it was the perfect fit. I love the school and the city of Boston. The academic opportunities the school offers are incredible and the lacrosse program is top notch. Boston University will challenge me both on and off the field and I can’t wait to be part of the Terrier family!”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “Although we did lose some talented seniors, we have people off injury that will make a huge impact and whom I believe will help lead us to success. I look forward to watching us grow as a team.”
Thank You: “First, I would like to thank my club lacrosse coaches Colleen Magarity, Mary Dean, and Eric Gregg for believing in me and helping me develop as a player and a person. Without all of you none of this would have been possible!
“Also, I would like to thank my high school coach Marie Schmucker for helping me grow as a player. Thank you to my swim coaches for teaching me the values of hardwork and self-discipline.
“I would also like to thank my parents for coming to every tournament and game and supporting me in everything I do. Thank you to my teammates for pushing me to be the best I can be and for all the laughs and great times.
“Finally, thank you to Liz Robertshaw, Ana Heneberry, and Jessica Antelmi for giving me the opportunity to be a Boston Terrier. I am beyond excited and grateful.”
