Why did you choose St. Francis? “Saint Francis University has a great criminal justice program. I’ve wanted to pursue working in the criminal justice field ever since I was little. I love the location and size of the school. They also have a very competitive DI lacrosse team with a great new coach. I am so excited to play there!”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “My school is very serious about our lacrosse program. We set high goals each year and I believe ever since my freshman year on varsity we have progressed. Our defense is tough and organized and our offense works very hard on and off the ball. We are definitely hoping for a shot at counties this year, I know we can be successful.”

Also my Mom for taking me on countless college visits and tournaments, and helping me with whatever I needed to not only be successful at lacrosse but in life as well.”
