WHY DID YOU CHOOSE HOFSTRA?  “I wanted to go North to play field hockey and have always been interested in NY City. I love the snow and winter time as well as everything that goes on in the busy city of NY. Once I visited with the coaches and did the school tour, there was no other place I wanted to spend my college years. Everything about Hofstra and the field hockey program was perfect for me!”

ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO THANK?  “My travel coach Melissa Martin for helping all us North Carolina girls get noticed. The sport is very new down here and its a bit more work for us to get recognized. My parents for all the help and effort and time (and money) they have put out to help me accomplish a big life goal.”
