What will you major in/study? “I plan on majoring in Kinesiology and Exercise Science, or possibly Physical Therapy, I’m not totally decided yet!”
Why did you choose James Madison? “James Madison is the perfect place for me. The lacrosse is high level which is exactly what I was looking for, and the whole school has such a positive outlook. The coaches are great, and all of the girls are so sweet. All of the other sports are big as well, so it’s a very fun atmosphere. Also, the academics are a perfect fit for me.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the season? “This season we will hopefully have a strong, but young team. After losing some graduates and losing some current seniors, younger girls will have to be pulled up but they will definitely give it their all and hopefully we will have a successful season!”
Additional Comments: “I would like to thank my Mom and Dad so much for everything they’ve done for me. From taking me to tourneys, camps and practices to everything else they’ve done and especially for supporting me so much. Also, my sisters, because even though they didn’t really know what was going on the whole time, they were so excited for everything that has been happening for me.”
