Why did you choose this school? “As soon as I stepped on campus, I knew it was where I belonged. The coaching staff focuses on building the whole person rather than just the athlete. The girls are my type of people – I connected with them right away. I am super stoked.”
Outlook for 2017 season: “I am looking forward to playing my last year with my younger sister Francesca. We look to win the PAC championship – not just get there. We want to finally finish this year.”
Thank You: “Bottom line straight – I would not be here if it weren’t for my mom, dad and family. I can’t thank them enough – all the tournaments and long road trips would not have been possible without you. I can’t say thank you enough to coaches Laurie Markle, Casey Leap and Katie Sobotor for being with me from little league rec all the way to now. The coaches always pushed me and gave me tough love that was much needed. I hope to make you guys proud. Playing for a lacrosse legend like Coach Markle was truly an honor. I appreciate you for always pushing me and serving as my lacrosse role model.”
Other schools considered: University of Florida, UConn, Villanova, Penn State
