Why did you choose Duke?
I chose Duke because I grew up in the area and I've always been able to picture myself there. It is the perfect combination of academics and athletics. I couldn't ask for a better school.

A dream come true! I am so excited to become part of such an elite team.

My most memorable field hockey moment was in the last game of my senior season; my school team won the state championship for the first time in four years.
