Additional Comments: “I want to thank Coach Dick, Coach King, and Coach Shapiro for training me over the years at Quaker City. Without them I would not be the lacrosse player I am today. They taught me what it really takes to play lacrosse at a higher level and influenced me not only in the game of lacrosse but also in my personal life.

“I would also like to thank my High School lacrosse coach. Coach Firkser not only taught me about lacrosse but she also encouraged me to try and play in college.

“I want to thank Coach Duck for all the help she has given me over the years with lacrosse and the recruiting process.

“Lastly, I would like to thank my family. I would like to thank my parents for all the time they put into my lacrosse career, from coaching me to sitting on the sidelines every game. I want to thank my grandparents for their support and attending all of my games despite weather conditions. Finally, I want to thank my brother for the many times he practiced with me and the support he has given me over the years.”
