What will you major in/study? Psychology
Why did you choose Coastal Carolina? “As a school, Coastal Carolina University has one of the most amazing Athletic Departments I have ever seen. The Facilities are state of the art and the fields and stadiums are all brand new. Couple that with palm trees, beautiful weather and the beach 8 miles away and who could resist it.
The University itself offers some the best course selections in the world.
“Their modern facilities (some still under construction) are uniquely Georgian in style, making the Campus bright, spread out and inviting. I can see many accomplishments and memories being made here, both on and off the field.”
Outlook for your High School team: “Moorestown High School has an amazing Lacrosse history.
Having hit its 400th win with our opening game under the coaching of Deanna Knobloch, we look towards recapturing the Tounament of Champions Trophy this year. We have strong group of players that allow this team to draw from some of the best players in the state. Being a part of such a great program allows me to focus and continue to get better as a lacrosse player.”
Additional Comments: “Having started playing lacrosse in third grade with the Moorestown Lacrosse Club, I have made a long journey to the presant. Those coaches were very instrumental in shaping my abilities.
“The Middle School and High School programs at MHS were huge in my development. I can actually say it was South Jersey Select that gave me the opportunity to become the player I am today.
“Playing on the Pink 13 team for the last 5 years with the best talent in South Jersey has enabled me to compete at such a high level that it has prepared me for what college has to offer. These girls have become my family and even though we might meet as rivals when our schools play each other, off the field we are the best of friends. As a team we play competitively and step on the field with fire, as most of the teams from other states will acknowledge. It is the South Jersey Select circuit of tournaments, showcases and championships that allowed me to showcase my talents for college coaches to see.”
“I would just like to thank the coaches and the program for all that they have done and will continue to do for me.”
