What will you major in/study? Speech Pathology/Audiology
Why did you choose UConn? “I chose UConn for many reasons. Academically, they have an excellent Speech Pathology program. The coaching staff as well as players and recruits made me feel at home and as if I was already part of the team. I really loved the campus and the sports atmosphere.”
Outlook for your High School seasaon? “We only lost 3 seniors last season, and we’ve all worked extremely hard in the off season to prepare for this year. We’re focused on winning each day whether it’s practice, lifting, or game day and hopefully our hard work pays off.”
Thank You: “First, I’d like to thank my parents, sister, and family for all of their love and support throughout the years and in helping me accomplish my goals.
“I’d like to thank my club coach Josh LaGrow for teaching me the game of lacrosse and believing in me as both a player and a person. Also, I’d like to thank my CBA head coach Doug Sedgwick for continuing to develop my game and push me outside of my comfort zone to be a better lacrosse player and teammate. My CBA and Ethix teammates have helped me become who I am today, and I couldn’t be happier to be apart of such close, family like teams.
“Finally, I’d like to thank Pat Britton, my trainer, for teaching me that there are no limits to what I can accomplish.”
Other schools considered: Northwestern, James Madison, Brown, UNC, Florida
