"When looking for a university, I wanted to go somewhere I could not only compete at the highest level of lacrosse, but a place that would help me grow academically and personally. Stony Brook has provided all of those things and more. Stony Brook has a system in place that is designed for student-athletes to succeed, on and off the field, and I am proud to be a part of that."

"Being a student-athlete at Stony Brook has allowed me to experience the best of both the athletic and academic worlds. As an athlete, I participate in a competitive Division I program against other top-notch athletes from outstanding universities. As a student, my mind is constantly being challenged by world renowned professors. I've enjoyed my first three years and look forward to the challenges that await in the classroom and on the court in my senior year."
