What do you plan to major in? Biology
Why did you choose American U.? “American University offers the strength in academics that I was searching for with the additional opportunity to play Division 1 lacrosse in the Patriot League! Coach (Emma) Wallace and the girls on the team were so welcoming! I absolutely love the location and the campus of American University and after visiting the school, I knew I wouldn’t want to have my college experience anywhere else!”
HS team’s Outlook for 2017 season? “I believe that this year Kennett High School girls lacrosse will make it further into playoffs than ever! We have been working hard during the off-season, and I am confident that we will do very well this year!”
Thank You: “I want to thank my club coach of 7 years, Heather Wentz, I couldn’t have done it without her! The Kennett High school lacrosse program, specifically head-coach Dale Watkins, really helped me develop as a player. I’d also like to thank Michele DiJulius and Ultimate for helping me so much throughout the recruiting process! Finally, I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for all of the support from my parents since day 1!”
