Why did I choose Stony Brook: “I chose Stony Brook University because it offers a Nationally known Health Sciences program and a commitment to the Division I Women’s Lacrosse program. After meeting with coach Joe Spallina, Assistant coaches Kim Hillier and Caitlin Defliese and having a tour of the school and the Athletic facility, I was convinced that I could succeed both academically and athletically at Stony Brook. Coach Spallina is motivated to take the Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse Team to the NCAA Division I Championship and I want to be a part of that transition. I am looking forward to playing at Stony Brook with other players that I have played with and want to be a part of this successful program.”
What is your High School Teams outlook for the season: “My High School’s teams outlook for this season is to work hard and try to repeat last year’s success as the New York State Class A Champions. We are dedicated to achieve this goal again despite losing some players that graduated and I am excited for this season to start.”
