I want to excel in both academics and athletics there.

What did you experience during each visit?
Everyone was welcoming at each visit. Indiana I felt most at home.

What would you recommend to others when choosing a college?
Everyone gave me the advice, "Go with your gut feeling" and "choose where you feel most comfortable" so I would pass that along to oncoming seniors.

It's such an exciting feeling to know where you're going to go. It's sad too, but mainly I'm just excited.

What do you hope to achieve this spring?

Looking at your career at Hillcrest, what will you remember the most?
I've learned a lot from Hillcrest. I'm going to remember all the laughs and tears I've shared with my team, mostly.

What individuals in your life were involved in helping you make the decision?
God, my parents, and Coach Drique. They were all encouraging and supportive of my choice. We've all worked together to achieve what we have and I'm just happy to share it with them.
