What will you major in/study?Athletic Training
Why did you choose school? “Marist is such an amazing school, from the stunning campus, to the rigorous academics, and to the outstanding athletic programs. I chose Marist because I knew that I would be getting an excellent education that would prepare me for my future while playing Division 1 lacrosse. Coach Jess O’Brien and Assistant Coach Jana Bradley are both very accomplished in the lacrosse community, and I am honored to be able to play on their team next year.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “Coming off a championship season, I am very excited to continue the winning ways of last year. We have a solid midfield and attack, which will definitely help us dominate the conference and hopefully lead us to another undefeated season in conference play. We are being moved up a conference this year due to our success last year and we are ready to embrace the challenge of playing at a higher level.”
Other comments: “I have to thank my family, especially my dad, for traveling around the country with me to numerous camps and tournaments during the past four years. My dad has helped me with every aspect of the recruiting process and I would have never been able to achieve what I did without him.”
