HS team’s 2018 outlook: “This season my high school team should make huge strides and be very competitive. Last season we worked really hard and challenged some of the state’s top teams and I’m expecting this year to be even better! I have great teammates who work hard and all have each other’s back on and off the field, so I’m very excited to see what this year will bring for us.”
Thank You: “I’d like to thank all who believed in me over the years; my high school coach, Karlee Braniff, who supported and believed in me and my potential from the first time I stepped onto a lacrosse field and never gave up on me; my Michigan Wave coaches, Amanda Asher, Kayley Dahring and Rachel Curmi, who encouraged me, created opportunities, pushed me to my best, and basically made me the player I am. I was very blessed to be able to play on teams with coaches as great as these. I’d also like to thank my coaches whom may have not helped me with lacrosse, but believed in me and helped me learn the importance of working hard; so thank you to Josh Kosier, Luke Lloyd, and Joseph McElroy. Last but not least, I’d like to thank my loving family who went above and beyond for me, from traveling across the country for tournaments to making sure I had every opportunity available in order to be my best; love you guys!”
