Why did you choose Drexel? “I chose Drexel because it has everything I want in a school. It has strong academics and competitive athletics. It is also located in the city of Philadelphia where I always wanted to go to school. Also, Coach (Hannah) Rudloff, Coach (Mary) Moran, and Coach (Jackie) Cifarelli focus on a positive atmosphere along with the team working together to be the best that they can be.”
Outlook for 2017 HS season? “We lost some key seniors since last season and we entered into a new league for the 2016-2017 lacrosse season. Our goal for this year is to have a winning record and aim for a Frontier division title along with a PAC Championship title.”
Thank You: “First I’d like to thank Coach Rudloff, Coach Moran, and Coach Cifarelli for giving me this awesome opportunity to play for Drexel University.
“I’d like to thank my parents for always coming to my games and being my biggest cheerleaders. Without their support I wouldn’t be where I am today.
