What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose Georgetown? “Georgetown is an all around perfect fit for me. It’s a great mix of athletics, academics, and student life. The coaching staff and team are so welcoming and enthusiastic about Georgetown, which really influenced my decision. Also, I was looking for an urban school, and Georgetown is right next to D.C.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “I could not have asked for a better season. We were undefeated in both the FCIAC and in the State, and our only loss was to Garden City in overtime. The leadership of the seniors really set the tone for the season from the very beginning. I know next season will be very similar with both leadership and skill.”
Other schools considered: Cornell, Princeton, Stanford, USC
