Southern Lehigh High School


University of Mary Washington (DIII)

Why did you pick this college?

“I chose Mary Washington because I knew that I could get a really good education while also playing lacrosse with a team and a coach who are going to push me to be the best that I can be. The campus was also beautiful and since I want to major in biology, I really loved the fact that their science department is very competitive.”

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

Don’t have your mind set on one thing, be open to everything and figure out what you like and don’t like and what you want out of a school – that’s what’s most important.”

What’s your favorite part of playing for Blast?

“Playing with Philly Blast the past three summers has helped me grow so much as an individual and as a player and the girls I get to call my teammates are always so encouraging and supportive and have made my experience something I’ll never forget.”

Additional Comments

I just want to say thank you to everyone at Philly Blast for all their continuing support, especially Josie and Dodds who taught me to always work hard!!! I also want to thank my parents for driving endless hours to tournaments every summer and my school coaches for pushing me to be the best I can be.”
