Emily Pillion is a freshman defender from Wayne, Pa.
I chose to come to JMU because of the competitive lacrosse team, great academic fit, and beautiful campus.
My favorite non-lacrosse memory is winning the Central League Championship in field hockey my senior year.
My favorite lacrosse memory is playing lacrosse on spring break in Florida.
Something about me that would surprise people is I made the varsity cheerleading team in high school and immediately quit.
The accomplishment of which I am proudest is being awarded with the First Team U.S. lacrosse All American.
My favorite thing about lacrosse is having a close bond with my team.
A person who is an inspiration to me is Amanda Mathews (JMU senior defender and team co-captain), because I strive to be/play like her, and she helps me every day.
The one thing I miss most about my hometown is my family and friends.
The one thing I can’t live without is chocolate.
The most played artist on my iPod is Slightly Stoopid because they are the group with the most songs on my iPod.
A way that I relax is watching movies.
One of the top items on my bucket list is to travel around Europe.
