Why did you choose Hofstra? “ I chose Hofstra University because it’s a great school and they had the major I was looking for. They also showed me that obtaining my career goals, while playing lacrosse, is possible. The small class sizes are also a plus. On top of that, they have a great lacrosse program with amazing coaches. I felt Abby Morgan, Tanya Kotowicz and Allison Nuzzi really knew me as a player and a person. Also, the players I met were very welcoming. Another bonus is my family and friends will be able to watch me play. All around I think Hofstra University is the best choice for me.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “We only graduated three seniors so I feel we will still have a very solid team. We’ve been playing together for so long, we have great team chemistry. I’m expecting us to have a big season.”
Additional comments: “I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me and allowing me to play all the sports I wanted. I would also like to thank Lisa and Vinny Carnabucci, my first coaches. They taught me how to play lacrosse and have fun. My high school coaches Morgan Molinari and Shannon Sullivan for taking our program to the next level and gaining us national recognition. And finally, I would like to thank Danielle Gallagher for everything she has done for me. She helped me develop as a player and guided me through the recruiting process.”
