Why did you choose this college?

(Not answered)

What are your first memories of the sport?

My first memories of lacrosse come from watching my older siblings play when I was in 1st grade. I wanted to be just like them so I picked up a stick and I’ve never looked back.

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?

The recruiting process seems like a never ending journey. It’s difficult to know what college is the right fit, and even more difficult to get denied by a coach…Just know that in the end, even if it doesn’t seem like it, EVERYTHING WILL WORK OUT! I know that this expression is trite, but keep working hard and you’ll achieve your goal.

Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?

I’ve been on Coach Ann’s Storm Select team since the 2nd grade. Without Coach Ann’s support I don’t know where I’d be today. I also thank my many amazing teammates throughout my years, my parents, and my siblings.
