1. When did you start playing lacrosse?
I started playing lacrosse when I was in fifth grade, so since i was 10 years old. I have loved the sport ever since.

2. Do you have any pre-game rituals before you go on the field? 
When we walk down from the Athletic Center to the field before the game begins, we walk in two lines as a team. It always gets me pumped up.

3. What music do you listen to before the game?
I like to listen to relaxing, happy-go-lucky music. It helps to keep me calm and collected.

4. Who is your favorite lacrosse player? 
Sam Bradman. He was a local standout from my hometown area. He plays for a pro lacrosse team called Team STX that plays in pro lacrosse league called LXM Pro Tour.

5. Which lacrosse player would you least want to face-off against?
Greg Gurenlian from the Long Island Lizards. He is really good at the face-off circle, and he has a lot of different moves.

6. What is your most memorable lacrosse moment?
My first-ever college hat trick [where I scored three goals in a game] against Richard Stockton this season.

7. What is a valuable lesson that you have learned from playing lacrosse?
You get out what you put in. If you work hard, great things will happen. But if you get complacent, it will show, too.

8. Since you’re the captain of the team, what are some of the goals for this year’s lacrosse season? 
To take the season day by day, focusing on all of the little things that can be improved as opposed to focusing on the season as a whole.

9. How has lacrosse help you become the person you are today? 
It’s taught me time management skills and the importance of having strong friendships on and off the field and in life.

 10. What do you plan on doing after Marywood? 

I plan on attending graduate school.
