Why did you choose Richmond? “I love how seriously Richmond takes both academics and athletics. The small class sizes but the big school feel is the perfect combination for me. On top of that, I felt an instant connection with the coaches and the school itself.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “Last year, we were 13-1 and our schedule is getting harder every year. We lost many skilled seniors last year, but added some amazing members for this upcoming season. As a team we have been working consistently in the off-season and are ready to come out fast and hard this spring.”
Thank you: “I would like to thank my family for supporting me through everything and making endless lacrosse trips with me. Also, thank you to my teammates, coach, and the overall Canterbury community for being so encouraging and helpful.”
