Why did you choose Mercyhurst? “I loved the small school atmosphere. It’s nice to know that you will have a personal relationship with your professors, that they will know you by name and not a number. The LAX team at Mercyhurst was so welcoming from the first second I met them. They really made me feel like part of their family! Coach (Cecil) Pilson has also been very encouraging and I am really excited to learn from him.”
HS team’s outlook for this season? “My High School is kind of different. We only play in fall ball tournaments in the states. Most High Schools in Canada don’t have a lacrosse team. Our club teams are a lot more established. I have a good feeling about our team this year. It is our club`s fifth year so now most of the returning players have more established skills.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my first lacrosse coach Jackie Noble who taught me the game and let me know about the potential to play in the US. I’d also like to thank Ashley Rutz, my current High School coach who helped improve both my skills and my fitness. Lastly, I would like to thank my parents! They have been there for me since the beginning. Driving me to practice and games that are hours away. I wouldn’t be where I am without them!”
