What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose this school? “This college seems to be the best fit for me, both academically and athletically. I loved the campus, the lacrosse facilities, and the team culture. All the girls were so nice and seemed to all get along really well. Academically, ODU offers up to 130 majors which gives me lots of options to study in college.”

HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We have most of our starters coming back for 2016. Our juniors are really strong. We have some great talent in our upcoming sophomores as well. I hope we can challenge again for Catholic Academies title and make a run in districts.”

Thank You: “First, I’d like to thank my Merion Mercy and Philly Blast teammates. I’d like to thanks Coach John Geary (Merion Mercy) and Club Director Josie Ferri (Philly Blast) for all you’ve taught me. Big Thanks to Coach Caroline Dodds! Thanks to Coach Chris Coyne form Waldron Mercy for putting me in goal in the first place. And thanks to Jill McCabe for teaching me to play! Thanks to my parents for their support and driving me all over the place.”
