As a senior on the team, how much do you value being a leader?

I think being a leader is extremely important. The seniors before me helped me to be where I am today so I think it’s important to set examples for the younger girls and give them someone to look up to.

What do you think are your strengths as a lacrosse player?

I think my speed and my shot are the biggest strengths. I wouldn’t be as fast or strong as I am today without my coaches at Massi-Machado Strength and Conditioning.
