What Made You Decide to Commit to this College/University?
I love the coaching staff, and the girls on the team. I like the size of Bucknell (not too small, not too big), and the campus is very pretty. Bucknell also has a reputable biomedical and engineering program which is a major I am interested in.
How would you describe the recruiting process?
It is stressful and demanding, but all the clinics are fun and it is a great learning experience. You also get to play with a lot of other great athletes during showcases and tournaments that you will see again on the field in college.
What’s your favorite?

Mesh and Rail Elite Pocket sticks
High School season Outlook?
If our team stays discipled, focused and committed to win, I believe we will go far in the state tournament.

Drawing, Playing Piano and guitar, baking
What’s it like being a high school lacrosse player ?
I enjoy being being part of a team with a fun, competitive and like minded group of girls.
Anybody you would like to Thank?
