WHY I CHOSE SANTA CLARA: I chose Santa Clara because I felt like the school would be a great fit for me both  athletically and academically. I was especially excited when I went up for a visit and had the opportunity to meet the players and the coaches. I got the sense that the team was hard-working, fun-loving, and played well together.
