What will you major in/study? Undecided, maybe psychology.
Why did you choose Colorado College? “I chose the school because I am a native Coloradan and love everything about the state. I visited and loved the coaching staff and campus, and I think the block plan that C.C. utilizes is a perfect fit for me. Also the lacrosse team itself seemed very close and family based and that was a huge factor in making my decision.”
Outlook for your H.S. season? “My high school team is looking very good thus far. We lost a lot of talent due to graduation but plenty of sophomores and freshman are stepping up. I feel like we are playing much better than last year.”
Other schools considered: Clark University, Wesleyan, Goucher College, University of Colorado.
