What will you major in/study? Political Science
Why did you choose this school? “At first it was so unfamiliar, but the more I visited and learned about the Academy the more I realized what an awesome opportunity this would be. I’ll get an incredible education, play highly competitive lacrosse and have the opportunity to serve my country. I fell in love with the coaches, team and overall atmosphere of the ‘yard’ and Annapolis. I’m really looking forward to getting to know my teammates and playing for Head Coach Cindy Timchal. Go Navy!”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “Last year Haverford fared pretty well in the tough Central League. Although we have lost a few key players from last year’s team, we have several talented underclassmen ready to step up. I am excited to see how we do this upcoming spring.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Quaker City coach, ‘Coach D’, my high school coach, ‘MG’ and my old Haverford Rec coach, Kathleen Geiger, for all of their field instruction and help during the recruiting process. I would also like to thank my parents for their effort and for supporting me with this huge decision.”
