Why did you choose Old Dominion University, Women’s D1? “I chose Old Dominion because it offers everything I ever wanted in a university. Not only does it have strong academics and an amazing location, Old Dominion has an amazing lacrosse program built on team oriented ideals. Coach (Heather) Holt (Radnor grad) was nothing but welcoming throughout the whole process and after talking with some of the current players, I knew I wanted to be a part of this team. It is a special community and I am beyond excited to be a monarch!”
Is there anything else you would like to share? “I would like to thank my two club coaches, Coach Kaplan and Coach Kropp for shaping me into the player and person I am today. I would not be half the athlete I am without their guidance. I would also like to thank my high school coach, Lauren Mullen, for helping me and giving me advice during this crazy process. Lastly, I would like to thank my family for always being there for me and supporting me. Through the crazy travel schedule they always stayed my my side and made sacrifices so I could compete playing the sport I love.”
