What will you major in/study? Business Management
Why did you choose Findlay? “I chose The University of Findlay because of their great academics, atmosphere, and of course their lacrosse team. They really made me feel so welcome when I met the team and admissions staff. Also as a business major I will have the opportunity to participate in the Edge Partnership with the Cleveland Browns which I am very exited about.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “We really revamped our whole team last year. We changed everything we were doing before and asked ourselves what we could do better. We have already started indoor and preparing ourselves for spring. This year we hope to be contenders in the Ches-Mont league and get back to playoffs for the 2nd year in a row.”
Thank You: “First, I’d like to thank my parents (Gina and David) and my brother (Giovanni) for always supporting me in what I’ve done and always having my back when I have to make a tough decision.
“Next I’d like to thank my high school coaches (Mike St. Clair and Erica Roebuck) for their guidance and drive this past year and can’t wait to end my high school career with them.
“I would also like to thank my Brandywine Majors coach (ChristyAnn Morello) for all of her help and insight over the past year.
“Finally, I’d like to thank the UF coaching staff (Julie Duffy, Nora Boerger and Emily Boerger) for believing in me and for accepting me into the UF family. I cannot wait to be an Oiler for the next 4 years!”
