Recruit Profile
I love lacrosse because its all about speed and connections. Scoring is great, but making it happen, or stopping my opponent cold is better. It's about teamwork.

As a Freshman I started every game for the La Jolla High School varsity lacrosse team. Our team is one of the top teams in San Diego with a 5-0 record before the pandemic struck. In my last game, I scored a goal, had an assist, and recovered 6 draws. Our team was really getting into a groove.

I have played 7 years on the Mad Dog travel team and won the Coaches Award my first season. I have proven myself as a player, earning accolades as follows: starting Mad Dog Elite defender / mid-fielder 2016-20, 2016 Oceanside Hustle Champion, 2018 Riptide Champion, 2018 Vail Shootout Champion, 2019 Adrenaline America's Finest Rivalry Champion. I earned a position on the 2019 Under Armour All-American West Command (highest) Team, playing in Baltimore with our nation's best. I could not tryout for All-American in 2020 due to the pandemic, but I played in 3 fall showcase tournaments, Prime Time (MD), Recruiting Challenge (NJ) and Face Off (NJ) starting all 9 games earning a 5-3-1 record against the best in the East.

I have played soccer for a decade as forward on a competitive travel team, where I play with girls who are 1-2 years older. I started every game for the LJHS Varsity Soccer team as a freshman. I also enjoy skiing and body surfing. I am a multi-sport athlete and excited about the opportunity to play college lacrosse. I recently transferred to La Jolla Country Day School due to the pandemic and to advance my academics.

Academically I am an excellent student, earning A grades and a position on the Honor Roll. I qualified for the Seminar Program, reserved for the top .01% of students nationwide, focusing on high-level, advanced curriculum. A crucial part of my education are athletics. The lessons I have learned in sports have helped me grow into the person I am today. I grew up doing charity work with my family, including Meals on Wheels, volunteering at the San Diego Food Bank and playing bingo with the elderly. I believe community service is important because I am directly helping those in need, while also becoming a better person.
