Congratulations to Delaney on her college choice and good luck in the future!
Saint John Paul II Academy
California State University, Fresno
Why did you choose this college?
Fresno State has everything I could want in a University. I love the team and Coach, and the campus is beautiful. Their academics are strong as well, which was a big part of my decision. I did not initially want to pursue lacrosse in college, but Fresno made it impossible to say no.
What are your first memories of the sport?
Signing up for Riptide because I wanted to be like the girls my dad coached at Park Vista.
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 most surprising part was probably how easy it was. I expected something much more difficult but Coach Jess made it super simple for me. The best advice is to be patient, because everything happens for a reason. The process takes time, but its worth it in the end.
Who would you like to thank for helping you get here?
I would like to thank Coach Atkins, without him I would not be even considering going to college for lacrosse. I would also like to thank my parents, for always supporting me, and my sister for pushing me to do my absolute best.
