Why did you choose the University of Chicago, Women's D3? "I verbally committed to the application process at UChicago for so many reasons. I absolutely love the Environmental and Urban Studies program and the opportunities at the marine biology lab at Woods Hole, Massachusetts. As for the area, Chicago couldn't be a better city to go to college in, and the University's campus is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! The most exciting thing for me though is that this lacrosse program is being built for greatness with incredible coaches and players, and I am honored to be part of their future."
Is there anything else you would like to share? "Thank you so much to everyone who has helped me through not only this recruiting process but also my lacrosse career. My family, team, coaches, and teachers have all been the most incredible supporters. I am forever grateful for the impact you have all had on my life and can't wait to continue this journey together!."
