Congratulations to Gillian for her college commitment and good luck in the future!
Oviedo High School
Saint Leo University
Why did you choose this college?
I chose this college because I love the positive atmosphere the team and coaches provide. It’s a team that values hard work, dedication, and grit. It was exactly what I was looking for!
What are your first memories of the sport?
Some of my first memories of the sport was going to my first day of practice and crying because i was so scared!
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?
I found that actually trying to pick the college took a longer amount of time then I expected. It definitely is a process that having guidance and taking time to make your decision matters a great deal. I think that starting early can never hurt- only help. It gives you more time to develop more options as you grow as a player and more time to decide where you want to commit.
Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?
My parents and coaches have constantly pushed me to get here. My parents taught me that this all comes with hard work but it definitely pays off in the end. They are my biggest supporters! I’ve had constant encouragement from my club coach Ann Bomleny, as well as her experience and advice to help guide me towards the right decision. My best friend, Breanna Heather, who plays lacrosse as well, has also helped develop me into the player I am today. She has never doubted my potential and was always willing to help me grow.
