What will you major in/study? “I will probably take advantage of Amherst’s open curriculum to double major in Economics and Spanish.”
Why did you choose the school? “I decided on Amherst because not only was it a great fit academically and athletically, but the program has a strong culture of giving back and supporting team members on and off the field. Events like their ‘Hike for Helen’ last year, and their campaign to raise money for Student Sponsor Partners this fall are pretty unique to their program, and something I definitely wanted to be a part of. Additionally, Coach (Jon) Thompson’s commitment to the growth of his athletes as people, as well as lacrosse players, played a big role in my decision.”
What is your team’s outlook for next season? “We are bringing back a lot of our offensive production, and we have some great guys stepping up to fill in defensive holes. We also have some great two-way midfielders that will adjust really well to the NCAA rules that we are playing this year in Missouri. I like our chances.”
Thank You: “I can’t thank my parents and sister enough for their time and financial commitments throughout this process. Huge thanks to coach Eddie Condon for everything he has done since my Freshman year. Also, Coach Kay, Coach Seyer and the entire MO22 community were a huge part of the experience, I can’t wait to see where that program is in a few years.”
