“One thing I have taken from my 12 years of playing lacrosse is to play every game like it is your last, and practice that way too. This philosophy is one I have experienced the significance of first hand like so many other student athletes whose seasons also got
cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe it is equally important to both enjoy lacrosse and learn from it every chance you get.”
Christine is now taking classes in preparation to apply to veterinary school.
