College Commitment: Widener University NCAA Division III / MAC Commonwealth committed November 2017
Intended major: Nursing
On choosing Widener: “I choose Widener because of its amazing nursing program and all of the opportunities they presented me. I love the smaller campus that has a certain “home” feeling to it, alongside that Coach Gillespie made me feel welcomed and respected every time I talked to her. Ultimately, the team overnight finalized my decision; the girls were outgoing, friendly and amazing athletes.”
Other programs considered: Catholic, Stevenson, and Pitt
Other activities and sports: I’m a varsity swimmer in the winter and am team captain, and am on numerous councils at my school including Student Council, Athletic Council and neighborhood council. I am also a Relay for Life leader.
Best field hockey moment: “My best field hockey moment is playing overtime on my senior night this past season. It was the best game with regards to energy, crowd support, reffing and ability.”
Field hockey goals: “I intend to remain playing throughout college and beat my personal goal line save record.”
Foglio’s shout-out: “I would like to thank Bridget and Katie Sherry for introducing and teaching me to love this sport. My coaches Pige, Reid, D- Roc, and Fish for improving my skill and instilling the values of comradeship, fortitude and winning in all of your players. I’d like to thank my teammates, especially Oliva Fender, Katie Capalbo, Val Henderson for all of the Sundays spent at the turf. And finally my mother and father for their support, tips and endless patience.”
