10. What is your favorite memory of HC Women’s Lacrosse?

My favorite memory of HC Women’s lacrosse was my freshman year when we beat Navy. It was my first collegiate win and it was an amazing feeling to work together as a team, no matter who the opponent was, and to come out on top.

11. How do you feel about Saturday’s game vs. Colgate?

I feel confident going into Saturday’s game against Colgate, we just had a huge team win against Lafayette last Saturday that I believe will carry into this weekend. Our games against Colgate are always a battle but with our team chemistry and confidence finally clicking, I know we can win.

10. What is your favorite memory of HC Men’s Lacrosse?  Beating Harvard in Double OT this year, coming back from a 9-3 deficit in the 3rd quarter.  That was a very special game.

11. How do you feel about next Saturday’s game vs. Navy?  I feel confident.  Our team has been playing well as of late and with a good week of focused practice I think we will be tough to beat.
