What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Vassar? “I choose Vassar because of the great academic opportunities that it has to offer. It is an incredible school, and it is in a great location. The campus is great, and the coaching staff is really motivated to win.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for the upcoming season? “We had a rough year last year, however we only lost one senior so I think we will surprise some teams this season. We have some good young talent that should really help us, and some good returning players to lead the team. We have been working hard in the off season and hopefully it will show in March.”

“I would also like to thank my parents for everything that they have done for me. They did everything they possibly could to help me pursue my goal, and I am extremely appreciative for that.”
