Why did you choose Gardner-Webb, Women’s D1? “I chose Gardner-Webb because of the strong family feel and amazing academics and athletics they offer. After talking to Coach Jessie (Aguglia) for the first time, I immediately felt at home and knew that GWU was the place for me. She connected me with current players and fellow recruits and without hesitation they gave me everything I needed to make my decision while making me feel like a bulldog right away as well. The smaller population and nursing major they offer definitely contributed to my decision, as well as the beautiful campus and athletic facilities. Coach Jessie and the rest of the coaching staff knew how important it was that I could understand and grasp the dynamic of the campus since I couldn’t get down there to tour it due to COVID, which they gave me every single resource I could possibly need and ask for.
“I was able to connect to the coaches instantly and they made sure I was not afraid to ask or say anything. They wanted to go on my timeline and for me to not feel rushed, which made me feel so welcomed and wanted. I love Gardner-Webb and it is the best decision I could have ever made for my current and future life as a lacrosse player and student.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents, who have supported me since the age of 3 playing lacrosse and giving it my all on the field and in the classroom; my sisters and the rest of my family who have always been my #1 supporters; my old rec coach who is my current high school coach, and who has watched me go through the ups and downs of injuries and sports, and she’s never lost faith in me; my club coaches, who have always supported me and given it their all to be the best coaches and motivators ever; my teammates who are my second family; and lastly, all of my past physical therapists and doctors who have helped me achieve over 100% recovery and empower me every single time I come back.”
