What will you major in/study? Leaning toward neuroscience or psychology
Why did you choose the school? “I chose Yale because Anne Phillips is an amazing coach and I clicked with her right away. She really cares about each player and is making the program the best it has ever been. The school itself will offer every student endless possibilities and opportunities for their future and there is no place I’d rather be.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “Last season we went 16-0 and won the ISL. It was the best lacrosse season I ever experienced. Just two years ago we were a team who came out of a 2-13 season. The seniors were amazing leaders and every person on the team was so talented. This year we will definitely miss our four division one seniors but I have absolute confidence that we can have a repeat this year.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my family for helping me through the recruiting process as well as my club and high school coach who were really supportive.”
Other schools considered? Harvard, Boston College, UPenn
