Why did you choose UVM? “I chose the University of Vermont because of Coach (Sarah) Dalton. Coach Sarah has believed in me through the entire recruiting process and never gave up on me. She has been a role model since the day I met her, and the opportunity to play for someone like Coach Sarah is a once in a lifetime opportunity — an opportunity that is a no brainer for someone who wants to become a future educator and coach one day.
“When I first stepped onto campus I knew Vermont was the place for me. Whether it was observing team practice, going to class with the girls or hanging with out the team in the locker room, everything just fit. The team welcomed me with open arms and smiles on their faces. Like I said, Vermont is just the place for me.”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “Working hard everyday to ‘make our teammates look better’. We have a lot of talent and depth throughout the entire team, and if we can figure out how to put all the talent together we should only do great things this year.”
Thank You: “Thank you to the handful of people who have been there throughout this very stressful recruiting process, the people that have helped me prove the all wrong.
“To my sisters, Riley and Dylan, who have not only supported me on the field for years, but off of it as well. To my mom, who has made it possible for all of my dreams to come true, keeping my head above water, never giving up. My dad, who has taught me what it takes physically and mentally to be a Division 1 athlete, pushing me each and everyday. My brother, Jack, for all the support at all my games, cheering us on. The awesome Tom Peace, for reminding me everyday to keep going, to have confidence. To all of the coaches I have played for, for giving me new opportunities. And thank you to all of our family and friends who have been there and have believed in me along the way.”
