What will you major in/study? Pre-Dental
Why did you choose the school? “I chose ECU for its extensive Pre-Dental program and brand new dental school. I love the Greenville community and hometown atmosphere. Another key factor of choosing ECU was Coach Amanda Barnes because of her goalie career and her vast knowledge of the position. This will only help me become the best goalie I can be for the team. I’m excited to belong to a growing program and look forward to leaving a team legacy. Go Pirates!”
HS team’s outlook for 2017 season? “Our goal for this season is winning another ESIAC Championship. We only lost two seniors and our current varsity is strong at both ends of the field. We have two new coaches this year, Coach Hahn and Assistant Coach Koolage, who have extensive experience in coaching and playing lacrosse in college.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents who have been my support system since I started playing when I was 5. I also want to thank Coach Liz Marr and Coach Kara Koolage, who gave me the confidence to be the player I am today. I also want to thank all the ECU coaches for giving me this opportunity to become a collegiate athlete.”
