Why did you choose Georgetown? “Georgetown has been a college interest of mine throughout my high school career. It has outstanding academics as well as a fantastic lacrosse tradition. The location of Georgetown suits me well, being close to home and near DC. After meeting the coaching staff, I was excited by their enthusiasm and the expectations they have for the years to come.”
