What will you major in/ study? Sports Management
Why did you choose UConn? “UConn is an excellent academic school and I really loved the campus. I felt very comfortable with the team and the coaches were awesome. The coaches and team seemed to respect each other and get along.”
What are your thoughts on this past High School lacrosse season/teams outlook for next season? “We are a young team with a lot of potential. We were one game short of reaching the Sectional finals. If we can work together, we can accomplish most of our team goals. We lost some important seniors, but return most of our team back this year.”
Thank You: “I would like to mostly thank my parents for everything that they have done, I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish my goal of playing for a Division 1 school without them. They always travel and take me to tournaments all over, which isn’t always easy. Also they have always pushed me to work hard and do the best.
“Finally, I would like the thank my coaches Jen Williams, Nancy Vecchio, and Dick Lighton for what they have done for me. They have taught me so much about the game and the meaning of dedication and hard work to become the kind of player I am today. I am so excited for the next two years and working with them to get better.”
