Why did you choose Towson? “Towson is a competitive program that has been in the conference championships the last few years. The coaches are great and can get the most out of the team.
“Towson has a great feel on campus, the location is great, it offers a tremendous amount of undergraduate programs and the support for the lacrosse team is incredible. I will also be playing at Towson with my younger sister, Kerri, after her graduation from Ward Melville in 2018.”
Thoughts on your High School season? “This year we made it to the quarterfinals in Suffolk County Division I and lost to a tough Northport girls team. We have a lot of returning players and also some players coming up that know the game. I am looking forward to next years season as I hope we will make it even further in the playoffs.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank first my Mom and Dad for driving me up and down the east coast every summer. I would also like to thank Shannon Smith and Bill Smith for giving me the opportunity to play for LI Top Guns.
“Lastly, I would like to thank my HS coaches Kerri Kilkenny and Ryan Hawkins for giving me the opportunity as a sophomore to become a part of the starting line up at Ward Melville and for believing in me.”
Other schools considered: Northwestern, Bryant, Hofstra
