Playing at the Division I level, you never maintain at one level; you always get better.

Q: How did you get started here in Lacrosse? A: I actually had a back injury, I did gymnastics, and I just wanted to try Lacrosse in seventh grade. I did and look where it took me!
Q: What made you want to commit here at Old Dominion? A: On my visits, I loved the campus. The team seemed really welcoming and the facilities are amazing!
