Q. How long have you been playing Lacrosse?

I started playing lacrosse in 3rd grade, so it has been nine years.

Q. What made you start playing Lacrosse?

My older brother introduced me to lacrosse. Lacrosse is a popular sport in Long Island. I joined a league when I was in 3rd grade.

Q. This season is coming up soon (On Feb. 28th). How do you feel?

I’m very excited. We are a strong team and have very good leaders. Freshmen are also playing a very big role on the team.

Q. How is the condition of your team?

I think we’re great. Our practices are basically a lot of conditioning, like running, sprints and lifting.

Q. Are there any game that you are looking for?

Yes. The Worcester Cup will start on February 28th. We will play three other colleges in Worcester: Assumption, Anna Marie, and Becker College. We want to beat Assumption because we want revenge from last season.

Q. How did lacrosse change your life?

Lacrosse looked good on my college applications. It also makes me hard working and better at time management.

Q. What is your motivation?

I just love winning and competition. I always have fun playing lacrosse and the sport makes me push myself. I have a good relationship with my teammates and coach. We have four captains that are seniors, and they are very good leaders. They make sure we all feel like a part of the team, and they also support our accademic life.
