I grew up horseback riding my whole life, but it wasn't until I had to give it up that lacrosse came into my life. I joined my freshman year at La Reina High School, when the program was still up and coming. My teammates were my first coaches, teaching me the basics of the game. Once season started, it was almost like a bug I could not get rid of. I looked forward to going to every single game and practice. Towards the end of freshman year my parents and I began looking at other high schools for a few different reasons, one of which was a strong lacrosse program. A key component of Chaminade to me was the lacrosse team and its successful coach and track record. Once I decided on Chaminade and started going to lacrosse practices, my love for the sport only grew as I was now part of leading team that included an All-American player and several All-Region players.
Lacrosse has taught me how important hard work and dedication are and what it means to be a good teammate. When I am looking at schools, I want to be able to find a place that challenges me, but fits me well both academically and athletically. I believe the skills I have learned, and the assets lacrosse has given me, makes me a great candidate for college lacrosse and an asset to any program.
