Why did you choose Georgetown? “I chose Georgetown because it is a good mix of what I wanted. I wanted the best education I could get, along with being away but not too far, good surrounding area, big time other sports, and of course a competitive lacrosse program. I wanted everything that came with a school, and think Georgetown has it.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last Season I thought we did very well. We were a young team that lost a lot of great leaders, but what helped us the most was how bonded we were.
“Although statistically we did ok because although we had amazing talent, it took us a while to work well together and at times just seemed to fall short of scoring that last goal. I think looking into the future we are going to be able to take a sort of buffer year to really work well together.”
Thank You: “My TLC coaches were so helpful to me and that made a huge difference in my process.”
