Megan Albertsen ledger:
High School: South Side High School
Graduation Year: 2015
College Choice: UMass-Lowell
Club Affiliation: Long Island Yellow Jackets
Lacrosse Honors: Rookie of the year, Varsity lacrosse as a Sophomore, 2013 Conference Champions
Academic Honors: National Honor Society, Full IB Diploma candidate
What will you major in/study? Physical Therapy
Why did you choose UMass-Lowell? “I chose UMass-Lowell because I love the Boston area, my brother goes to BU so its a 30 minute trip from him. I also really like Coach (Carissa) Medeiros and Coach (Ashley) Durepo. The campus and the physical therapy program is exactly what I was looking for. The new program is also a great opportunity considering there is only one class above me.”
What are your thoughts on the upcoming season? “My High School team lost a few key players and seniors but we are a strong team. We just got moved up a conference so we are playing really tough competition. We are really working hard this winter to prepare for the spring season ahead.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my PAL lacrosse coach from 7th grade Scott Maxwell, if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have realized my true love for the game. All my yellow jackets and school coaches throughout the years and my family for always supporting me and having my back.”
