Why did you choose this school?: Choosing a Philly school was so easy for me as soon as I stepped on campus. Temple truly is a special part of Philadelphia, and is a place that was so different than any of the other schools I had considered! I chose Temple because it felt like home, and the competitive nature of all of the athletes is something incomparable. I am so grateful for the opportunity to play and am excited to see what is in store for the Temple Field Hockey program.
Other Colleges considered: University of Michigan
Who would you like to thank?: Three people I would like to thank are Dave Marsh, Grace Harrold, and Kelly Harrold. Kelly, my high school field hockey coach, and Dave, my club coach have pushed me every day to not only become a better player but a better person! I thank them for being there to push me when I was ready to give up! As difficult as I know I am to deal with sometimes, they have allowed me to be competitive and make what I could out of this sport! I truly could not have become the player I am today without them. They are 100% the reason I was able to go Division 1 in this sport! Secondly, Grace Harrold. I often refer to her as my “field hockey bff since day 1.” I would like to thank her for starting this ride with me as well as becoming one of the most inspirational players and someone I continue to aspire to be like every day! Having someone to push me and who has the same drive and love for the sport as I have, I was lucky to play with her for so many years! Grace also shaped me to become the athlete that I am today!
