WHY UVA?

  • “I come from a family where no one played lacrosse. In sixth grade, I had to decide between playing baseball and lacrosse. I chose lacrosse and this was the best decision that I ever made. My father was very supportive even though he still talks about what a great left-handed pitcher I could have become.”
