When she was a sophomore, EF went 12-9-1 and reached the WPIAL semifinals and also participated in the PIAA playoffs.

Along with being a standout for the lady Warriors, she also serves as captain of the Century United Football Club of Pittsburgh, where she plays for the two-time PA West State Cup champion team.

In addition, she is a five-year member of the Olympic Development Team, which won the U-17 Region I championship. She also played for the U-13 and U-15 region champions.
