"I chose Wisconsin because I felt like I meshed well with the team right away. All of the girls were so welcoming on my visit and I liked the training regimen. The university upholds a strong academic reputation while still offering a vibrant athletic culture. Additionally, the trails, lakes, and college town are spectacular."
