Who would you like to thank?: I would like to thank my parents for everything they have ever done for me during my entire field hockey career. They have dedicated so much time, effort, and money into the sport that I love and have never missed a single game of mine. I would like to thank my sister, Reagan. She was a huge part of my success as she always pushed me to become better. I would like to thank my high school coaches, Kelsey Lovelace and Baily Kerr. They helped me improve my game astronomically and become a better overall athlete. I would like to give thanks to all my club coaches at H2O for teaching me the sport I love since I was 9 years old; especially Janice, Sydney and Sabrina Rhodes, Alice Puckett, and Jackie Cummings. They encouraged me to improve at every practice and pushed me to be the best player that I can be.
