Q: What made you decide to go to St. Anthony’s?
I decided to go to St. Anthony’s because of its reputation of great lacrosse, excellent education and I was seeking to further enhance my faith.
Q: Why Boston College?
I chose Boston College because the moment I stepped on campus I knew it would make the perfect fit for all that I wanted in a college.

I was also considering the University of North Carolina, University of Florida, University of Maryland, and University of Virginia.
Q: What was your favorite memory at St. Anthony’s?
My favorite memories were all those of my lacrosse season last year. The camaraderie with our seniors from last year was unmatchable and it ultimately led to our 17-1 season. With our perseverance from our previous year of a championship loss, we were victorious over talented teams such as Manhasset, Sacred Heart, and Syosset, and Garden City. We all share an unforgettable bond with each other because of our successes.
Q: Have you learned anything throughout your time at St. Anthony’s that you can take with you to Boston College?
I have learned the importance of an adequate balance of academics and lacrosse. Though playing lacrosse to my best capability is important, it’s crucial to put academics first and focus in on studying and excelling in the classroom. St. Anthony’s also has taught me how to be a good person, a helpful friend, and a supportive teammate.
