Why did you choose Penn? “I chose Penn because it offers a great combination of top-tier academics and a winning lacrosse program. Coach (Karin) Corbett has built a team culture based on hard work, honesty and respect. On my visit, the players and coaching staff made me feel so welcome. I loved the campus and immediately felt a connection to the team and the University.”
Outlook for 2017 HS season? “Although we graduated several starters, we have so many talented players I am looking forward to another winning season and hopefully keeping the Inter-AC title and earning the PAISSA State Championship.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my Ultimate and Agnes Irwin teammates for always being there for me. Throughout the years, you guys have made me enjoy every aspect of lacrosse and all that comes with it.
“A special thanks to Coach Duck for guiding me throughout the process and always pushing me to compete at the highest level. Without Coach Duck’s help, I would not be the player I am today. I look forward to growing further under her guidance. I would also like to thank my coaches Alex Duckenfield and Maggie Forker for helping me develop my skills. Your constant coaching has made me a better player.
“Finally, I’d like to thank my parents and sisters for supporting me during my many tournaments and practices. I can’t wait to play with my sister Caroline in her senior year at Agnes Irwin.”
