Why did you choose the school? “I love the campus and lacrosse team. The coaches were all very welcoming and are excited to take their program to the next level. Since I am not sure what I want to do, I like that Virginia Tech has a lot of majors. Also, it’s a big school with a beautiful campus and great athletic facilities.”

What is your team’s outlook for next season? “I think we’re going to be a strong team this year. We have a lot of upperclassmen and a big junior class. We have to work together as a team, and we’ll be able to go far.”

Other comments: “I’d like to thank my two lacrosse coaches: Jaime Deniken (Spirit) for spending so much time in the summer coaching us in the tournaments and for all the help and encouragement during the process; and Wendy Landry (Unionville) for supporting me throughout the recruiting process. I would also like to thank Carey Garvey (Spirit Club coordinator) for working so hard and getting our club team into the big tournaments we needed to be in; and also my family – my mom, dad, sister and brother, for all their endless support. I couldn’t have done it without all these great people!”

Other schools considered? Delaware, Towson, Temple
