Recruit Profile
Leader in the cage, strong voice on the field, consistent play, effective clears- high lax IQ, determined, coachable.

I started playing lacrosse in the 2nd grade. I grew up playing attack and midfield, then switched to playing goalie in 4th grade. For most of my youth lacrosse career, I played up on 2021 teams since I was one of the only dedicated goalies in the region. In 6th grade, I was asked to play at the Youth Lacrosse World Series with 2021 Mad Dog West, placing 3rd in the country. Mad Dog West was the only Final Four Team, west of Manhattan, New York, which was a great honor and tremendous experience both on and off the field. Growing up and playing with my teammates who are now top recuits from the west, has pushed me to perform at a high level.

One of the toughest decisions I made as a student athlete was remaining at my high school and choosing to play high school sports at a smaller, private school. Yet Santa Fe Christian is the perfect environment for me to excel at my academics and allows me to develop close relationships with my friends and teachers and pushed me to continually develop my leadership skills. Freshman year, I played both football and lacrosse. Football pushed me to work hard to earn my spot on the field; I played middle linebacker and left tackle. My freshman lacrosse year, I was the starting varsity goalie, finishing the season with a 15 - 2 record and a 61.8% Save percentage. I earned Academic Honor Role, Defensive MVP, Rookie of the Year, and First Team All League honors. I also broke the single game save record, making 21 saves against a team from Colorado. The school record had previously been held by the current starter for Robert Morris University.

My Freshman year GPA was 3.9 unweighted and a 4.33 weighted. I have also been evaluated by Inside Lacrosse and received a rating of 80 at the Adrenaline High Rollers Showcase. I am continuing to hone my skills and build my resume and am excited for what the future holds.
