Why CMU? “I chose CMU because it just felt like the right fit. The minute I stepped on campus I knew that this was the school where I wanted to be. After being able to meet the team and learn more about the school during my unofficial visit, it checked all of the boxes. Learning about Coach Johnstone’s goals for the team and her aspirations about how her program will be run as well as her coaching philosophy really allowed me to buy into what she is creating at CMU. The school itself is was also a big draw, I loved how it has the perks of a big school but feels like it is still a small community of people, as well as it gave me the degrees I want to set me up for a successful future.”


Describe a field hockey memory you won’t forget. And, why? “A time that really sticks out to me is winning the District 3 championship my junior year. This win was really big for us as a team because it was our first really big win in our state championship run that gave us the confidence to say that we wanted a state title. This was also the first in program history for a field hockey team to win a district championship and the first record we broke that year. I think that day really lit the fire within us to be a successful as we were last season and ultimately drove us to the state title.”
