Why did you choose this school?: I chose Converse because of the academic support, competitive field hockey program, and Army ROTC Program. The school felt like home from the moment I was on campus. The girls on the team and coaches were so welcoming. As a goalie, you want to be able to be competitive with your teammates but still respect one another. The goalie atmosphere was amazing, and I am so glad to be a part of this family!
