“I committed to play field hockey for the University of Delaware because it was the perfect fit for me academically and athletically. I started coming to clinics at Delaware about four years ago and immediately I knew I loved their style of play and coaching techniques. The next part of my decision relied on finding a perfect academic match. Knowing that I wanted to become a physical therapist, I realized Delaware afforded me the best opportunities to pursue this career. Between the STAR campus and the ability to have an Exercise Science major, I knew the University of Delaware was the place for me to be.”
