Why did you choose Mercy? “I chose Mercy College because it has the major I want to take up, they have a fairly new D2 lacrosse program which is great and the school has a nice size campus that I can fit into perfectly. Everything is great about the school.”

What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “This upcoming season more then 90% of our offense and defense is all returning and we didn’t really lose many players. We will have a predominately senior team with a few younger juniors and sophomores that will help us along the way. I think we are going to have a great season this spring.”
