Why Yale? "I chose Yale because of the prestigious institution it is, and its academic and athletic excellence. I knew that I wanted to play for Yale's rapidly growing Women's lacrosse team, and compete at the highest level. I was especially looking forward to learning a lot from Coach Phillips, and the rest of the dedicated and talented coaching staff, and taking my game to the next level."
