Why did you choose St. Joseph’s? “I have spent a lot of time at St. Joe’s over the last four years watching my older sister Allison play for SJU. During this time I fell in love with the school and atmosphere and realized this was where I wanted to play lacrosse and earn my college degree. I also really enjoyed getting to know Coach (Alex) Kahoe after attending two SJU clinics and speaking with her during the recruitment process. I know she is a coach I want to play for.”

Outlook for 2015 HS season:
“We lost some very good seniors, but we have several very good returning underclassmen with lofty goals which include winning the Catholic Academies League and qualifying for the State playoffs. I can’t wait for the season to start!”

Other comments:
“I would like to thank my family and friends for all their support; especially my parents, for always coming to my games rain or shine and cheering for me and supporting me throughout this process. I would like to thank my coaches, John Geary and Brooke Fritz, for helping me throughout his process and shaping me into the player I am today.”
