People to thank: “First, I would like to thank my Phantastix coaches, JoAnn Yusko, Sue Fraizer and Jess Lake, and my Mesa Fresh coaches, Peter Rohr and Tom King. You all have had such a huge impact in molding me into the lacrosse player I am today, and have helped me through the recruiting process. To my Garnet Valley coaches, Jenny Purvis and Melissa Nollen: thank you for pushing me to be the best player I can be. I would also like to thank Sarah Kalish for coaching me during my younger years and always making lacrosse fun.
Lastly, I would like to thank my brothers and sister, Kara, for spending hours playing in the backyard together, and my mom and dad for their endless love and support. Also a special thank you to my dad for introducing me to lacrosse, and for always being there to help me improve my game.”
