What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose the school? “My sister, Sophie, attends Lehigh and plays field hockey for the Mountain Hawks. So, I have been tuned into Lehigh’s excellent academics and campus for a while. A Lehigh education will give me a big boost after college. Lehigh’s lacrosse program is first rate. The Coaches and players I met convinced me that the team would be a good fit for me.”
What is your HS team’s outlook for next season? “We graduated 18 seniors, including 11 players who are now playing Division I lacrosse. So, we are a team in a bit of transition. But the team has a lot of depth, excellent leadership from the upperclassmen and two superb goalies. With hard work and a little luck, we should have an excellent year.”
Thank Yous: “Duxbury lacrosse starts early. Since second grade, my Duxbury coaches have helped me on and off the field. Thanks to Coach Bernier, Coach Brady, Coach Glass, Coach Marston and Coach Prime. Laxachusetts has been awesome. Thanks to Coach Chouinard, Coach Morris, Coach Evans, and Coach Ajemian. Special thanks to Coach Connelly for the encouragement and helping me through the recruiting process. Thanks to the Duxbury High Coaches. Love to Mom, Dad, Soph, Gaga and Buppa.”
