How long have you been playing lacrosse?: Almost 7 years.
What is your favorite aspect of lacrosse?: I love my teammates. I’ve had a lot of fun when I’m around them – especially during the summer tournaments. I think they are great people!
Do you have a favorite moment or memory from a lacrosse game?: I enjoy seeing new players being introduced to lacrosse and helping them build confidence on the field. I had a couple of friends last spring try rec lacrosse for the first time and both had an amazing first season! It was fun to share those moments with them as their teammate.
Is there a coach or athlete that you look up to as a role model and why?: My role model is my dad. He’s been coaching me in our town’s rec lacrosse program and on my travel soccer team since I started playing when I was 6. He has shared his love of sports with me, especially lacrosse and soccer. My dad has taught me to never give up even when things don’t go your way, in sports or in life in general.
Have you ever suffered a major sports related injury?: If so, how do you feel that improved your game? I tore my ACL during Triple Threat Elite try-outs in July 2021. I was the youngest patient my physical therapist had ever treated for this injury when I started seeing him when I was 12. I am currently in recovery but am feeling stronger than ever. I miss playing but have had the opportunity to go to practice to watch my teammates and learn new plays. This has given me a new perspective for when I am able to get back on the field and play later this spring!
Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of sports?: Other than lacrosse and soccer, I enjoy baking and hanging out with friends.
How does being an athlete inspire you to do good?: It teaches me to never give up and to learn from my mistakes.
