Why did you choose Drexel? “After visiting Drexel, I knew it was the right fit for me both athletically and academically. Coaches Hannah Rudloff, Mary Moran, and Lindsey Kovar built a great program and a positive team environment. They were very supportive during my process and the team was very welcoming. I feel very fortunate to be able to continue to play lacrosse as well as challenge myself with Drexel’s experience-based education program.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Although we have a young team, our goal this year will be to win the Suburban One League title. We have a lot of potential as a team and I believe the hard work during the off season will definitely show in the spring. With the help of the talented underclassmen joining this year, I am confident we will be very successful and have a chance at competing in the playoffs.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for always supporting me through this difficult process and for the countless hours spent traveling to tournaments and camps. Thank you to my three sisters for helping me become a better player providing the motivation to follow in their footsteps playing lacrosse at the collegiate level.
“I also want to give a big thanks to Michele DeJuliis and Jen Duckenfield for their advice and amazing coaching. I learned a lot playing for Ultimate and I would not be where I am today without their help. They guided me through this process and I am grateful for all of the time and effort they invested in me. Thank you to my high school coach, Janique Craig, for giving me the opportunity to contribute as an underclassman and for all her encouragement these past 2 years.
“Finally, I want to thank my youth Bulldogs Lacrosse coaches, Betsy Dougherty and Deb Andress for showing me what it means to have a true passion and love for the game. Their enthusiasm inspired me to work hard and pursue a lacrosse career.”
