Why did you choose Swarthmore? “If you’ve heard of Swat you know it’s one of the best schools in the country. Hands down. It’s not too far from home, and it just felt right. Great school, Great vibes, Great team on the rise, it’s just a great fit.”

HS team’s 2018 outlook: “We graduated some solid seniors, they’ll be missed, but at the same time we’re young and once the kids learn, we’ve got a chance to be really good. A district championship is the goal for sure, and what comes after that we’ll be ready.”

Thank You: “Everyone! I’ve been playing lacrosse for 10+ years now. So thanks to my parents for taking me to all the games, tournaments, practices and tryouts; my club coaches at Skyhawks, specifically Desi and Lou for teaching me to love the game and love how I play it; thanks to the entire Twist organization their commitment to us as players has gotten us all to where we are now, it’s been a blast playing with Twist for the last 4 or so years; thanks to all the friends I’ve made on the way, some friendships I’ll keep for the rest of my life. And thanks to my big brother Jonathan, for playing at Denver and teaching me what ‘that game with a stick’ was and why I should give it a try.”

Other schools considered: Haverford, Vassar, Trinity, Florida Southern, Hampton
