She has been named All-Academic in both sports every year since her sophomore season, and is currently a team captain for lacrosse. She is also a member of the National Honor Society. She hopes to play club lacrosse in college at either Boston College or Georgetown University.

The Scholar-Athlete Program recognizes a boy and girl from each high school “whose academic and athletic careers have been exemplary, whose personal standards and achievements are a model to others, and who possess high levels of integrity, self-discipline and courage,” according to the CIAC.
