Coach (Laura) Field and Coach (Anne) Murray are two fantastic coaches and I am looking forward to a great four years with them.”

HS team’s 2018 outlook: “For the 2018 Notre Dame lacrosse season, while we graduated a great group of seniors, I can see that we are a talented group and work very well together. I am so excited to see where this season takes us. One goal for this season would be to win the Inter-Ac League.”

I also want to thank my Notre Dame coaches, Coach Xan Zimatore and Coach Maura Wilson for always pushing me to be my best, guiding me, and helping me develop my game.
