How long have you been playing for the C.W. Post field hockey team and the C.W. Post women’s lacrosse team?

I have been playing on the field hockey team for four years, and this will be my fourth year on the lacrosse team in the spring.

What made you decide Post was the school for you?

I chose Post because I could play two sports here, and the people here are really nice.

How do you feel about Post now?

I really like it a lot. It is a great place to be a student athlete.

How have you managed being a two-sport student athlete here at C.W. Post?

I go to study hall a lot, and I try to find an equal balance between both teams and coaches. I try not to choose one sport over the other, and I stay focused.

What lesson(s) will you take from Post?

The biggest ones are time management and public speaking.

What is the best memory you have with the team?

My best memories with the team are the bus trips and overnights in the hotels and the feeling of sisterhood that I have gotten from it all.

What do you want to do after you graduate from Post?

After I graduate from Post, I want to be a teacher and coach lacrosse and field hockey at the high school level.
