What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose Hamilton? “I chose Hamilton for several reasons. Hamilton has a great academic reputation and is one of the top liberal arts schools in the country. The school also has a strong sense of community, which I found very enticing. The school also has a strong lacrosse team that plays in the very competitive NESCAC.”
What is your team’s outlook for next season? “We have the majority of our team returning and a lot of talented young players. We return our entire starting defense and goalie, so we will be strong on the defensive end. After losing in the second round of the playoffs last year we are looking to come back stronger and making a serious run.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for all of their support both on and off the field. I would also like to thank Coach Hodgson, Coach Conway, and Coach Fox for everything that they have done for both me and the entire Hills East lacrosse community.”
Other schools considered: Tufts, Wesleyan, and Dartmouth
