What will you major in/study? Speech Pathology
Why did you choose Vanderbilt? “I chose Vanderbilt because it has everything I was looking for in a college experience. Vandy has great academics, but the athletics are also a big part of life on campus. I also loved the entire lacrosse coaching staff and the players and felt like I would be a good fit on their team.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last season we ended with a State Championship win and a #2 National ranking while improving our record to 51-0 over the past two seasons. We will be losing a lot of great seniors from last season but also have a lot of great players returning and we hope to make another run at the State Championship title this year.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents and sisters for supporting me with everything and my Moorestown coaches Mr. and Mrs. Knobloch for getting me to this level and giving me the opportunity to play for such a great program. Also I would not be here without my teammates at Moorestown pushing me and making me a better player everyday.”
