Why did you choose Holy Cross? “I love absolutely everything about Holy Cross; it is the perfect fit for me. The lacrosse program is competitive and Division 1, and both Coach (Stephanie) Ridolfi and the players made me feel like I was already part of the team. Academically, Holy Cross is extremely strong and challenging. On my first visit (as cliche as it may sound), as I stepped onto campus I could immediately picture myself spending my college career there.”

What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Our last season was a difficult one, and we unfortunately faced some tough losses. However, this year I believe that our entire team is set out to prove that we have what it takes to come out on top once again. We have already been putting in a lot of hard work in the winter to prepare for the upcoming 2014 season, and I strongly believe that it will pay off.”

Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents, my brother Joey, Coach Rose, Coach Wiener, Coach Mitchell, Coach Chapman (Chappy), Coach Leek, Coach Boghosian, Kristin Jones and Dean Maddalone.”
