Why did you choose St. Joseph’s, Women’s D1? “I chose St. Joe’s because I love being able to stay close to home while being so close to the city as well. As soon as I talked with the coaches and visited the campus I could just imagine myself playing there and that it was the right fit. I wanted to go to a school where I could push myself and continue getting better and I knew at St. Joe’s that that would be able to happen.”
Thank You: “I want to thank my teammates, parents, and coaches. Both Coach Kropp and Coach Kaplan have been with me since I was little and I have been able to learn so much from them. With playing with my team, they always stay positive and support me no matter what; along with my parents who have done the most for me. I am so thankful that they are always there to cheer me on, drive me to games or practices, and help me through it all. I, of course, would love to thank the St. Joe’s coaching staff as well for helping me through the whole recruiting process and allowing me to enjoy it. I’m so excited! Go Hawks!!”
