What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Mercy? “I was attracted to the Honors Business Program because of its great reputation and success rate. It is known for its internships and job placement. I like the location and the size of the campus.
“In addition to the school itself, Coach (Jordan) Levine made me feel at home on my visit, which made the decision very easy for me. He has a winning team and I can’t wait to be apart of it.”
Thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/outlook for next season? “We had a very successful season this year by winning a State Championship. Next season, we are moving up a division in which we will have higher competition. This will make us work harder and grow stronger as a team.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for always supporting me and helping me be the best I can be, and my brother and sister who are always there for me. I would like to thank my High School lacrosse coaches, Coach Matt O’Brien for helping me throughout the whole recruiting process and making me a better player and as well as Coach Pete Keogh for always pushing me to do my best.”
Other schools considered: Sacred Heart, Pace, Bentley, Gettysburg
