I could not ask for a more perfect school for me. Lafayette has the perfect balance between challenging Division I athletics and demanding academics. Coming from a small high school, I wanted a small tight-knit college where there is a sense of community and an opportunity to get to know your professors and that is Lafayette in a nutshell. Lafayette is a place where I will be able to push myself, athletically and academically, but still have an amazing college experience at the same time. I cannot wait to start playing for and attending this great school!
