What will you major in/study? Special Education

Why did you choose ECU? “I was looking for schools that offered Special Education as a major. When I visited the campus I realized it was exactly what I envisioned when I pictured myself in college. Once I met Coach (Amanda) Barnes, Coach (Emily Garrity) Parros and Coach (Lexi) Cross I was ready to commit. It doesn’t hurt that the facilities are amazing!”

Outlook for 2017 HS season? “We are returning all but one of our starters next year and are coming off a loss in the sectional finals. We are shooting to win the tournament of champions. Many of us have been playing together since 5th grade and it will be our last time playing together. We are definitely playing for each other.”

Thank You: “Most importantly I would like to thank my parents and brother for always supporting and encouraging me. I would also like to thank Steps owner Charlie Shoulberg for helping me through the recruiting process and building such a great program, my high school coaches, Coach Dragon and Coach Pinto for helping me become a better player, my teammates for lifting my game and a special thank you to MG Hollingsworth for teaching me how to play lacrosse and making me love the sport.”

Other schools considered: TCNJ, Cortland, Iona
