What will you major in/study? International Business
Why did you choose this school? “I fell in love with Fairfield the first day I visited the campus. The Jesuit values are appealing to me and my family. At Fairfield, I am also going to be challenged on and off the field. The program is supportive, and I am already feeling welcomed into their family. I can’t wait to officially become a Stag! Thank you Coach (Laura) Field and Coach (Erin) Slifer!”
Outlook for 2017 HS season? “I am looking forward to this year’s season. We play in the Inter-Ac and have a lot of really tough competition, but we are fortunate to have a core group of strong players as well as quite a few great newcomers to our team. I am hoping that we can work hard and have a winning season!”
People to thank: “Thank you to my coaches at Phantastix, Coach Yusko, Coach Frazier, Coach Beers, Coach (Jess) Lake, and Coach (Annie) Brophy. I could not have developed my game without your knowledge and support.
“Also, thank you to Coach (Brooke) Watson and Coach (Kelli) Romano of Germantown Academy for pushing me to grow as a player. I look forward to growing personally and as a team with you.
“Thank you to my parents and teammates for also supporting me throughout the years! My parents have made sacrifices to drive me to practices and tournaments because of my dream to play Division I lacrosse. To my teammates – you will always be my PHAMILY!
“Without you all this would not have been possible!”
