Why did you choose Loyola? “I chose Loyola because the family atmosphere and Jesuit education is something that is very important to me.

The coaching staff at Loyola is amazing and I know that the lacrosse program at Loyola and the University will bring out the best in me as a player and person.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “After winning the sectional championship for the second year in a row, our team is really looking forward to pushing ourselves to not only excel in our regular season but to win the regional championship. Our team is on the verge of getting past sectionals, so our strength and focus will be on improving every game and getting past regionals and into the state tournament. I am looking forward to Stephanie Cooper’s first season as head coach and all the advice and experience she will instill onto the team!”
