Why did you choose UC Davis? “I had taken a campus tour in the early spring and fell in love with the campus. Later in the year I went to a lacrosse camp and met the coaching staff and current players on the team. The atmosphere and energy that they brought made it exciting and I really saw myself fitting into the team. Kate Henwood personally took me aside and told me about all of the amazing amenities and perks of being a student athlete at Davis. I felt like I could relate to her and talk to her like one of my teammates.”
Outlook for 2015 HS season? “This year I think my team has a chance of winning league and advancing into CIF. Last year, we placed second in league, but now that we are all familiar and are comfortable playing with each other, we will be able to advance farther.”
Thank You: “I would first like to thank my club coach, Joe Brown, for keeping me level headed in this process. He is the reason I am going to Davis in 2016 because he pushed me towards my goals of being a Division 1 athlete. My mom also stayed up for long nights to help me write to college coaches and pushed me to talk to them at camps, tournaments, etc. They are a few of the many people who helped me achieve my dream.”
Other Schools Considered: SDSU and Cal Berkeley
