In addition to Lacrosse, I am a passionate runner. Starting at around age 5, I’ve been moving - soccer, local fundraising runs here in Nashville, and now I’ve worked my way up to completing two half marathons. My most recent one in April 2019, I recorded a 2-hour completion without any formal training. This led me to join the cross country team when in my sophomore year. I learned and improved a lot and am looking forward to a likely appearance on the varsity team next year. This is also a great complement to my off-season training program.
In the summer, I enjoy being outdoors. When I’m not playing lacrosse, I always attend our local YMCA overnight camp for several weeks (5 years now). This summer I will start my journey to camp counseling by attending their counselor in training two-week program. It will be a great way to create long-term relationships and build leadership skills that I can use on and off the field. As well as camp, I’ve volunteered at my church’s vacation bible school as a counselor for the past few summers. I’ve been able to use those skills to develop more of a leadership role on my team.
As I look to become a college student athlete, I value a school with a rigorous academic program and a lacrosse program that allows me to continue the dream of playing a sport I love. While I have not decided on a college major, I’m open to learning more about programs offered at your school and those pursued by your lacrosse student athletes as well as how you and your staff have prepared them for the careers they have decided to explore.
