What will you major in/study? Undecided

Why did you choose the school? “Being a state school, it offers many different majors which was important to me. I also really like the program that Coach (Mindy) Richmond (head coach) has built up over the years and am excited to be a part of such a dominant team.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Honestly, it was just such a blessing to be on such a talented team. The conference we are in is no joke for sure (IAAM A); we ended up falling to McDonogh in the semis, but I look forward to seeing them again my senior year.

“We will definitely miss all of our graduates, but the talent on our team is still incredible. I believe that the sky is the limit for us and we will all definitely step up to the plate.”

Other comments:
“I want to thank my club coach, Abree Johnson, who has coached me for six years now and believed in me after serious knee surgery a few years back, always pushing me to be my best and helping me along with the recruiting process. I also want to thank my high school coach, Jessica Randisi, for pushing me beyond my comfort zone everyday. Finally, I want to thank all my teammates over the years for being one of the many reasons I fell in love with lacrosse.”
