Congratulations to Sara on her college choice and good luck in the future!
American Heritage Boca Delray
University of Denver
Why did you choose this college?
Denver has a beautiful campus, and is an amazing school athletically and academically. The coaches are amazing coaches and people, and I loved all of the girls on the team and think they have a great team culture. I can’t wait to be a Pioneer!!
What are your first memories of the sport?
In fourth grade, my dad asked my twin sister, Anna, and I if we wanted to play lacrosse and showed us a YouTube video of lacrosse because we knew nothing about lacrosse. We decided to try it. Our rec team was super fun and I fell in love with lacrosse right away.
What part of the process was most surprising to you about the recruiting process and what would you like to pass on to those who are going to face it in the future?
When the recruiting rule changed it was hard not communicating with the coaches. Don’t rush to find a school. Make sure to visit schools and get to know the players and coaches.
