Why did you choose Harvard? “I chose Harvard because I loved everything about the team, coaches, campus, and town. Harvard has incredible academics I am so excited to be surrounded by such a diverse and intelligent group of people. The town of Cambridge has so much going on and being around other schools in Boston will be awesome. When I first met the team, everyone was super welcoming and I could immediately tell it would be a great fit for me.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “AIS Lax had a successful season last year and because of that, we have a very tough schedule this year. We all have our hearts set on winning the Inter-Ac and states again this year. We have a lot of talent in the all classes and the underclassmen have gotten so skilled. I am so excited to see what we can do this year.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank Coach Duck for always supporting me and teaching me so much about the game. I don’t know what I would do without her. She is an amazing role-model and coach and playing for her for these past 4 years has been amazing.
“I’d also like to thanks my parents for always rooting for me and believing in me.
“Lastly, I’d like to thank my brothers and sisters for introducing me to lacrosse. I have had incredible role models to look up to and watching them play all these years throughout high school and college has taught me so much about the game.”
