Personal: Parents are Mindy and Alex…has a sister named Maggie…undecided on a major…chose Gonzaga because, “When I started the recruiting process, I had no idea what I was looking for and was pretty overwhelmed by the entire process. I hoped that I could find a school that had a good and growing tennis program and strong academic credentials. I really hoped I would know when I found the right school. I knew almost immediately, after arriving on campus, that Gonzaga was the school for me. I loved the family environment. Everyone on campus was so friendly and supportive. The atmosphere was pretty incredible. There is so much school spirit. Everybody I met and talked with seemed so excited and honored to be there. I cannot really describe it, but I am so excited to be a part of it.”
