What will you major in/study? Economics
Why did you choose school? “Dickinson has the best blend of strong academics with top-notch athletics. Their facilities can easily compete with top Division I schools. I wanted a small school with a big feel and I definitely get that at Dickinson. The professors know everyone by name and truly care about your success. The reputation of Dickinson’s study abroad options attracted me and the very strong alumni network enables me to have a very competitive career right after graduation.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We had a very strong team last year, but fell hard in the quarterfinals of state. We lose several key people, such as defenseman Chase York (Loyola), attackman Peter Mahony (Yale), face-off man Devlin Conway (Navy), and goalie Benji Rothenberg (Gettysburg). We have a very strong senior class with defenseman Kiernan Coles and midfielder Evan Condon (Army).”
Thank You: “I want to thank my high school coach Ian O’Hearn for everything he has done throughout my high school career. I want to thank Coach Webster for giving me the opportunity to attend such a great college with a fantastic lacrosse program. I am very excited to compete for a national championship while at Dickinson.”
Other schools considered: Wesleyan, Franklin & Marshall, Connecticut College, Colby, Lafayette
