Recruit Profile
-Most proud of my versatility, tenacity, and aggressiveness. Proven abilities as a fast and quick player. Multi sport athlete. Coachable.

Growing up in an a very active family with two older sisters and one younger brother I enjoyed various athletic, academic, and extracurricular activities starting at a very young age. I have been a lacrosse player year round since 1st grade. I played for the National Premier Lacrosse Team with Lakeshore Lacrosse as a 4th grader on the 5th grade team which was compiled of 15 players hailing from three Midwest states. I played for Grizzlies CT Lacrosse Club team from 5-7th grade. I am currently playing for Gold Coast Lacrosse on the Gold team since 8th grade. As a lacrosse defender I am proud of my man on man defense, my knack for interceptions, and my speed. As a leader, I have been selected as captain of Berkshire School's Varsity Cross Country Team as a junior this fall. I am a certified lifeguard, an expert skier, and recreationally enjoy golf and tennis.

Outside of sports, I am a noted clarinet and bass clarinet player selected for Advanced Chamber and also play in the Community Orchestra at Berkshire School with a continued interest in playing the bass clarinet in college. I had previously participated in the selective Wind Ensemble and All City band from 6-8th grade. Within my high school community have been selected as tour guide, library proctor, music center proctor, and I am a member of the Environmental Action Club. Outside of school I am continuing lifeguard training, and I am completing a four week Leadership In Training course. During my summers I am responsible for babysitting my younger brother on weekdays.

Academically I have been a high honor-roll student at Berkshire School and finished my sophomore year with a cumulative 3.8 Unweighted GPA (4.2 weighted). I am proud to say that last school year I co-authored and published a manuscript featured in the prestigious mBio Journal, associated with the American Academy of Microbiology, for my contributing research on inactivating virions. I would enjoy continuing research at college/university.

For my upcoming junior year I am enrolled in AP Chemistry, AB Calculus, AP US History, AP + Advanced Math and Science Research, Advanced English, Advanced Chamber, and Advanced Spanish 4. I am very interested in playing lacrosse for a college or university that provides my major interests of Cell and Molecular Biology and/or Biological Engineering.
