Why did you choose Vanderbilt? “Vanderbilt offers the perfect combination of great coaching, great lacrosse, and great academics. After stepping on the campus and hearing Coach (Cathy) Swezey talk about her philosophy and plans for the team, I couldn’t see myself anywhere else.”
Outlook for your High School team? “Our varsity program graduated 10 seniors in 2013 so the challenge this year is to see who steps up to fill the shoes of last year’s team.”
Thank You: “Thank you to Coach Swezey for liking me, to Coach Jenkins for pushing me, to Coaches Stacey, Kelsi, Kenny and Tierre for their time, patience, and advice, to my parents for all their support, and to my brother for understanding that they love me best! :)”
