What will you major in/study? Major: Sport Management
Why did you choose the school? “I chose Kennesaw State because I really liked Coach (Kristina) Llanes and her coaching philosophy and I also wanted to be a part of a newer lacrosse program. Also KSU has great athletic facilities, especially for lacrosse.”
What are your thoughts on this past HS lacrosse season/team’s outlook for next season? “My team had a winning record last season and made it to the state semifinals where we fell short. This year we will have a lot of returning talent on both sides of the ball and want to make a serious run for the state championship and bring home the trophy.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for encouraging me to be my best and to never give up; Coach LeAnn Tutchton, who introduced me to the game of lacrosse and has continued to teach me; my trainer, Mandy Godbee, who helped me get faster and stronger and is a great role model; Coach Tim Godby and the staff at Eagle Stix, who allowed me to play with the best travel team in the state; and my high school coaches, Mandy Ryan and Karen Duncan.
