Hit the golden goal in the 100th minute of the ODAC championship to cinch the program's 15th league title ... Scored the team's first goal in a 2-1 comeback win over Christopher Newport in the second round of NCAAs ... Also nailed an overtime game-winner Oct. 13 vs. Roanoke ... Made three assists on the season, most notably the game-winner in OT against McDaniel in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Sophomore (2016): Started all 21 games on the Hornet attack during her second year...Was the leading scorer for the Hornets with 10 goals and tied for the team lead in assists with five...Scored two goals at Sweet Briar on October 19th...Recorded two assists and a goal against Emory & Henry on October 5th.

Freshman (2015): Saw action in 23 games during her freshman season… She scored 10 goals from a reserve role… Netted the game winning goal vs. Babson in the first round of the NCAA Tournament… Will look to build off her impressive first year as she looks to take an expanded role in the Hornet offense next season.

Personal:

Parents: Michael and Shannon

Why Is Being A Hornet Important To You?: It means I'm going to a school I love being at, playing soccer with the best people and being surrounded by the best friends.
