Why did you choose Penn, Women’s D1? “I was not expecting to really like Penn and then I visited and I immediately fell in love with it. The energy and the vibe of the players made me feel at home and the coaches dynamic connection with the team was amazing. The campus was so awesome and it turned out to be everything I was looking for in a school. I also chose Penn because of the amazing academics, the really strong traditionally top 20 program, and the family-like team bond.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my coach Devin Schmidt. I would definitely not be the player I am today without her. Thanks to my family, which has spent endless days traveling with me and supporting me throughout this whole process; the entire Ultimate community, my friends; and Penncrest staff for helping me accomplish my dreams.”
