What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose Whittier? “The school is giving me a very helpful Academic Merit Scholarship which is helping my family a ton. I also love the location, the size, the coaching, and the atmosphere within the campus around it.”
HS team’s outlook for 2016 season? “Grandview lacrosse got a preseason ranking of 10th in the state of Colorado, and we are trying to prove that we should be a powerhouse team this year. We have a very strong senior class and are hoping to capitalize against the best teams in the state. We will surpass last year and hopefully make it past the first round of playoffs.”

“I would also like to thank the coaches throughout my career as an athlete who have assisted in developing the kind of athlete I am today. Especially my current high school coach Pat Chapla, who has brought so much to our program and myself especially since he stepped in last season.”
Other schools considered: Ohio Wesleyan, Illinois Wesleyan, Salisbury
