Why did you choose the school? “I loved my visit, and felt it was a great fit academically and athletically. Holy Cross has everything I want in a school: Outstanding academics, an amazing reputation, a beautiful campus and a great lacrosse program run by Coach (Stephanie) Ridolfi.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “I was very happy with our most recent season. We lost a lot of senior scoring and leadership from 2013, yet we were able to go one game further in the state playoffs, finishing with a 17-4 record. Next season, we have some very talented and athletic underclassmen returning, that should help us continue to grow as a lacrosse program.”
Other comments: “I would like to first thank my family for always supporting me. I would also like to thank my high school, coach Sara Shelley, my SJS club director, KC Knobloch, and club coaches, Brooke and Taylor Foussadier, for all their help and support. I would like to thank my RV and SJS teammates for pushing me to be better, and my friends for encouraging me. Lastly, I would like to thank Coach Ridolfi for giving me this amazing opportunity!”
Other schools considered? University of New Hampshire, Brown and Drexel
