What will you major in/study? Physicians Assistant or Pharmacy
Why did you choose PC? “I chose PC because I like the location, it is very close to my home and has a small town/close family kind of feel on campus. They also have a great Pharmacy program which originally interested me, but as of the year before I graduate, they will be getting a PA program which was my originally intended major.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “Play-off’s”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my high school Coaches, Coach Kate Sedgwick, Coach Daryl Moses, and Coach Sarah Nudelman. I feel that you all really pushed me to do my best every single day and practice and fully supported all of my decisions.
“Coach Wren Caples, I would like to thank you for teaching me to play in the very beginning of my lacrosse career. I literally couldn’t have done it without you and your patience when teaching me the differences between guys and girls lacrosse. I hope you continue teaching little girls lacrosse because I think you are a great coach.
“Coach Jim Schuerelin, I honestly can’t thank you enough. You were the one who gave me rides to practice and then back home and without you I don’t know what I would have done. I really appreciate you pushing me to do my best at all times and yelling at me to get better or faster. You always did your best to get me fired up before games and cheering me up when I got into my own head. You were a great coach and I can’t thank you enough for all of your help. I hope you keep encouraging girls to play lacrosse and keep them moving when they do things they probably shouldn’t.
“Coach Rob, Coach Matt, and Coach Jim Boisjolie, thanks for all those years of great warm-ups and trying to score on me. You spent a lot of time into making me what I am today.
“Coach Dalton, thanks for being one of the funniest coaches ever. It was always a struggle to determine if you were a player or a coach. Even though you always made practice fun you also kept us on course over the summer. I hope to play for you again soon.
“Thank you all for your help on this great adventure. I couldn’t have done it without all of your help.”
Other schools considered: US Coast Gaurd Academy, Mercer
