Why did you choose ECU? “I chose ECU because of the school atmosphere and spirit. They have a large number of majors to choose from and the sports facilities are some of the best around. I am also very excited to be a part of a new lacrosse program and the opportunity to watch it grow.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “We are a very young team and we are entering the season with only one senior. Our girls lacrosse program has been on a steady rise and we hope to continue on that path. We just hired a new Head Coach and a new Assistant Coach who are two of the best coaches on Long Island. We are all super excited for the upcoming season. Our short term goal is try and win the Division and make some noise in the playoffs. Our long term goal is to keep growing the girls lacrosse program.”
