Why did you choose UConn? “I chose UConn because of its terrific academics and athletics. I want to be a part of a strong community that is striving for something big and it is just a great fit for me.”
Thank You: “Thanks to Tri-State Director Sue Montegari for supporting me through the college recruiting process and giving me excellent advice on the sidelines; to Tri-State coaches Christie Cooper and Katelyn Murphy for helping me with the college process and developing my skills as a player and teammate; to high school coach Shannon Summers for supporting me and being the person I always look up to, pushing me on and off the field, and for constantly reminding me why I play and fell in love with lacrosse.
“Thanks to my brother, Joe, for handing me my first lacrosse stick and being the role model I look up to, and my parents for their constant support and love and for driving me to all my games and practices. Thanks to Jennifer Walther, Terry Dzelgalvis and Erin Jones, my Lower Bucks Lacrosse coaches, who inspired my love for the game and taught me what it means to be a part of a team.
“Thanks to all of my teammates that I have had along the way. I never would have been able to accomplish anything if it weren’t for all of you constantly pushing me and having my back. You’re the reason I’m always so happy.”
