Why did you choose to come to Georgetown?
I chose Georgetown because of the great academics and location it has to offer.
What are your team goals?
I would love to win the BIG EAST and make it to the NCAA Regional Tournament!
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
I give 110% in the classroom by trying to participate as much as I can and going to office hours. It is hard to keep up with school on the road so by going to office hours and participating in class I am able to get the most of the classes I am able to attend.
What is a favorite experience of yours at Georgetown?
I love going to basketball games and exploring DC.
What would you like to say to donors of Georgetown Athletics?
I would like to thank them because if it was not for them the golf program would not be what it is today. We really appreciate them supporting us and giving us the opportunity to play the sport we love at the collegiate level.
