What will you major in/study? Communications
Why did you choose USC? “I choose USC because I knew I wanted a challenge academically, as well as athletically. The thought of building a program and playing for (Head Coach) Lindsey Munday would be any player’s dream. The coaches, campus and big-time football seemed like a perfect fit. Beautiful weather year round doesn’t hurt either.”
Outlook for your High School team? “With many returning offensive player we are hopeful to have a promising year.”
Thank You: “I’m fortunate enough to be going to USC with a current teammate of mine. The Yellow Jackets’ coaching staff, including Carol Rose, have helped me throughout this crazy process and opened so many doors for me in the lacrosse world. Playing for Coach Rose makes you want to raise your game to the next level. I’m so grateful to be a Yellow Jacket and to have gotten the opportunities given to me over the past year.
“The girls I play with every weekend in the summer and fall have grown to be my best friends. They have helped me through the recruiting process and I have enjoyed playing lacrosse with them. They made me challenge myself both academically, as well as physically. I have been very fortunate to maintain those friendships past the summer and fall and hope to continue those friendships past college.”
Other schools considered: Florida, UNC, BC, Duke, Notre Dame, Virginia, Syracuse, and JMU
