Why did you pick this college?

I chose Fairfield because of the strong academics and Championship winning lacrosse team! When I first went to campus I knew right away that it would be one of my top choices! It was so important to me throughout the recruiting process to choose a college that I could see myself at if lacrosse wasn’t in the picture. Fairfield was the perfect fit! When I spoke to the coaches and players they were all so welcoming and helped me get a better feel for the team!

What advice would you give to younger Blast players beginning the recruiting process?

The recruiting process is always seen to be super stressful. It can be hard sometimes to stay on top of things, but you just have to remind yourself to do what makes you happy! Never settle for anything less than what you know your capable of! The outcome is so worth all the years of work.

What’s your favorite part of playing for Blast?

My teammates are definitely my favorite part! We have become so much more than a team over the past 5 years. They make every practice, game, and tournament so special and fun! Even though we are Blast Alums and don’t see each other every week for practice, we still make time to hang out 🙂

What other colleges were you considering?

Old Dominion, Quinnipiac, Butler
