What will you major in/study? “Currently, I am not sure what I would like to study. I am going to go to school undecided, but I will most likely choose a path that includes math and science because these are my strongest and favorite subjects in school.”
Why did you choose school? : “I absolutely loved it from the second I stepped foot on the campus. I just got the feeling that I fit in there, and that it was the place for me. I went on other visits and I found myself constantly comparing schools back to UMass, saying things like, ‘Well, UMass has this’ or ‘this was better at UMass.’ I would always think about the school, so I knew that I absolutely had to choose this school.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next year? “This year, I think my team is looking to get back on the radar. We had a tough season last year, and I think that we are just looking to bounce back from that and prove to everyone that we are better then that. I believe everyone is willing to put in the dedication and hard work it will take to do so. Of course, we are looking to be successful. But also, we all want to have a good time playing the sport we are passionate about.”
Other comments: “I would really like to thank all of the coaches that I have had throughout my career. Every one of them have helped build me into the player that I am today. I would not be anywhere without them. And, I would also like to thank all of my friends that I made through the sport. They have helped make it extremely fun for me, which helped me grow to love and it and become very passionate about it. And lastly, I would really like to thank my family. They are my biggest supporters and I can’t thank them enough. Especially my mom, who has put an absurd amount of miles on her car taking me to tournaments. She has sacrificed so much of her time to take me to the tournaments and is always there supporting me. My dad also has been a huge supporter of mine, and I am so grateful for such wonderful parents.”
