Previous School: Penn Charter
Hometown: Lower Gwynedd, Pa.
I had never heard of Middlebury when I first visited; my parents made me stop by on the way home from another school. The second I walked onto campus, I was in awe. I saw it for the first time in the snow and I immediately fell in love with the surroundings. The athletic facilities were unlike any others I had seen; I was dying go get onto the turf field and play a game overlooking the mountains. Once I found out that the athletic program was so strong at Middlebury, I was sold. From that first visit on, I knew that Middlebury was the only place I wanted to go.
What is the one thing that makes Middlebury College a special place for you?
I think the thing that makes Middlebury College such a special place is the people. I have made so many amazing friends here that I will have for life. Although the classes are great, I will not remember them as much as I remember hanging out with my friends and teammates.
What is your best memory as a player at Middlebury College?
I can’t choose between two memories—the first is when we made it to the National Championship for Field Hockey this fall…that was an unreal experience. Secondly, I think one of my best memories as a player is when we beat The College of New Jersey last year to advance to the final four in NCAA's. We were down in the beginning, and the whole team made a commitment to come together and win. It literally felt like we won a national championship, and I will never forget the feeling of winning that game.
What have you learned from your sport that you will use in your everyday life?
I have definitely learned how to push myself harder than I ever thought I could. I have also learned a lot about patience and composure, which are important values for life. I learned a great deal about time management, as well—I have been forced to become organized!]]>
